"[Google] says you adapt; you get smarter," Dog told Shepard, according to People. "All of a sudden, she's not there. Google says you get smarter when you're forced to deal with it. Because I still go, 'What time do you have to be up in the morning, honey?' I'm setting the alarms. …I'm getting better. I depended on her for so much."
Dog also shared a dream he recently had about his late wife.
"All of a sudden you’re all alone or you wake up and you go two minutes without realizing she’s gone and then you feel like [expletive]. I had a dream, I have visions," he said. "She’s in heaven and looks up and is like, 'My god, Big Baddy is going to love it here. Look at all the animals.' And I’m like, 'Where are they?' And then she's watering the garden looking exactly the same. I used to sneak up on her … and I did and she goes, 'Big Daddy, what took you so long?' and started crying."
In a brief statement to TMZ, a representative for Dog said, "I can confirm Dog is under doctor's care and is resting comfortably. Thank you for all of your well wishes -- keep 'em coming."
