Grief is one of the most difficult paths to navigate in life. We may think we are ready. In fact, intellectually, we may be ready. But rarely are we prepared for the emotional burden that seems to be thrust upon us, to be carried all of a sudden, all by ourselves.
The loss of a pet is a weight upon our hearts that can feel just as heavy as the loss of another member of the family.
Your dog may have had extraordinary attributes that were missed even more than those from humans.
The unconditional love your dog demonstrated, over and over, meant that there was never a list of grievances kept against you. Maybe you didn’t always come home when you said you would, or you sometimes lost your temper. Your pet still loved you . . . without conditions.
