I know how you feel, my older brother got me a Border Collie (Mickey) when I was 13 years old. I had her till I was 32, Mickey lived for 19 years. Mickey got so old i had to take her to the vet and put her down, absolutely killed me to do it but I had to.
I to said I would never get another dog for as long as I live. My wife got me a Spanador (labrador Retriever/ Cocker Spanial) 1 1/2 years later for my birthday, it was a good thing she did, it helped me a lot, although I will never forget Mickey.
Now go out and buy another dog, when you do you will remember why you bought a dog in the first place.
