We Are Never Prepared

November 15, 2018

Did you have a special furry friend that was your whole world? Have you ever loved a pet so much that you could never imagine your life without it? Did the day come when your favorite pal got sick and either passed on or had to be given peace? You are not alone!

Pets become an integral part of our family and daily life. Our morning routine may not be complete without playing fetch or going on a walk with your dog or snuggling with your feline.

The death of a pet can be what feels like the end of your world. An emptiness beyond your heart and mind's comprehension fills your days.  As humans, we imaging our loved kitties and pups feel our thoughts, emotions, and ideas. We see ourselves in our animals and they become like our children. Thus, it is no wonder we should be devastated when it is their time to go.

Remember, it is necessary to grieve and there is no set time because everyone is different. Allow yourself or your loved one to go through the loss with loving memories of the sweet friend and companion. For many people, replacing one pet with a new kitty or puppy can ease the loss faster and the new kitty/pup can help turn grief into a new joy, and enable you to keep the past love alive.

Where do they go? We hope it is heaven but nobody knows for sure. Still, the pain is so intense when we lose a furry friend that we need the ongoing reassurance that they have gone to heaven and will be awaiting us at the rainbow bridge.

Understanding Grief

December 29, 2017

There's no correct or incorrect way to feel sorrow, but there are gentler ways to deal with the hurt and carry your emotions in ways that enable you to mend.

Most of us share overwhelming love for our animals, so it’s normal to feel forsaken heartache and sorrow when a pet dies. While some people may not understand the depth of feeling you had for your pet, you should never feel guilty or ashamed about grieving for an animal friend. Instead, use these healthy ways to cope with the loss, comfort yourself and others, and begin the process of moving on.

For many people a pet is not “just a dog” or “just a cat.” Pets are beloved members of the family and, when they die, you feel a significant, even traumatic loss. The level of grief depends on factors such as your age and personality, the age of your pet, and the circumstances of their death. Generally, the more significant the loss, the more intense the grief you’ll feel.

Grief can be complicated by the role the animal played in your life. For example, if your pet was a working dog or a helper animal such as a guide dog, then you’ll not only be grieving the loss of a companion but also the loss of a coworker or the loss of your independence. If you cared for your pet through a protracted illness, you likely grew to love him even more. If you lived alone and the pet was your only companion, coming to terms with his loss can be even harder. If you were unable to afford expensive veterinary treatment to prolong the life of your pet, you may even feel a profound sense of guilt.
