There is no easy way to deal with
losing a furry love. Our lives take on new meaning when
we are enveloped by their ever constant love,
companionship, and soulfulness. We consider ourselves
the lucky ones, though, as we have clearly discovered
the secret. A secret that is only shared by those who
have been nurtured by a kindred soul's simple teachings
of goodness and compassion.
As our animal
companions are forever dependent on our care, they assume
those roles typically assigned to children. And, there is no
greater despair than to endure the loss of a child. Research
indicates that after experiencing the death of a child, it
may take three to five years for one to move on or begin to
live their life again. We believe the same holds true for
our furry children.
The amount of pain we experience when a
loved furchild dies is also a function of the level of the
relationship. If you were the person responsible for your
dog's needs, the one that your sweetheart cherished most,
the one who was always there, then you will need more time
to deal with this loss. All of that time that went into
building this unique bond with your dog needs to be worked
through. It can happen, but it takes time. The grieving
process is an important one, despite society's demanding
pace to move on. Below, are some items to more positively
acknowledge this loss, for a cherished friend or relative . . . or, for
