Pet Loss

by Kevin Caruso

Some people mistakenly believe that losing a pet is somehow less painful than losing a loved one. Some will say, It was only a pet.

But you and I know better. A pet is a family member.

For those of us who have pets, they are our children. They bring us great joy, and we from very strong bonds with them.

And for many people, their pet is their main companion.

Pets are family members. Period.

If other people do not understand that, then they have a serious problem, not you.

Losing a pet can be very traumatic.

Our pets can be with us for many years. And when they go to Heaven, we feel a great sense of loss.

So losing a pet can be just like losing a person.

You may want to find a special place in your backyard, or if you do not have a yard, a special place that you can use, and place your pet to rest.

Some people like to get small markers of some kind with the name of the pet.

But you can do as you like.

Find other people who understand what you are going through, and express you grief. Let your emotions out.

And give yourself time to heal.

And celebrate the life of your wonderful pet and the great times you had together.

Your pet is now an angel.

God bless you.

I love you.

Take care,
