If you are reading this, chances are that you or someone you care about has either lost or is preparing to lose a very dear and special animal companion. Animals, regardless of the species, size, shape, or color, are true gifts to those who open their hearts and welcome them in. To feel the unconditional love and admiration that animals are so capable of giving is an honor and a privilege that many people are not fortunate enough to experience. If you have loved and have been loved by an animal, you have been a part of a very special and unique relationship that goes beyond explanation.
I understand how difficult it can be to lose a pet and hope that after reading these messages, you will understand that it is perfectly natural to grieve the loss of a beloved animal friend and that you are not alone in your grief.
