Loss is an inextricable, indiscriminate, unavoidable part of life for a pet parent/owner. Even if we have experienced such a deep loss ourselves, despite our best intentions, trying to find the right words or what to say and do can elude us when we are in the face of another’s loss. Grief is not something to be solved, and it is inevitable. I see it more as going through a dark tunnel, you know you will see light again, but you don’t know when and you completely don’t like being in the dark. One of the things that stands out caring for someone who is suffering a loss, is that all people grieve ..read more

In the quiet corners of our hearts, there exists a space reserved for those furry, feathered, or scaled friends who have shared our lives. They may not have spoken our language, but their presence spoke volumes of love and companionship. As the saying goes, pets leave paw prints on our hearts, and when they depart, they leave an indelible mark. For many, the loss of a pet is a profoundly personal experience, yet it often goes unrecognized by society as a whole. This disenfranchised grief can leave us feeling isolated in our sorrow. But those who have felt the warmth of a pet's unconditional lo ..read more

Eighty percent of pet owners consider their pet as a member of the family. One of my favorite quotes is: “A dog is the only chance you have to choose a member of your family.”  When a Friend Loses Their Pet ..read more
