Honor the Life

Grief is as unique as a fingerprint… or in our case, a nose print. There is no right or wrong way to mourn, but there is a difference between healthy grieving and unhealthy grieving.  Acknowledging the loss of a loved one in an open and honest way, honoring that life that meant so much, helps to start us on the path to healthy grieving.  Americans are becoming more sophisticated about the relationship between humans and animal companions.  With this growing awareness comes the recognition that grieving the loss of a pet can be as painful, and in some cases more painful, than losing a human relative. Finding ways to ways to commemorate the love you and your pet shared is part of your grief journey.  Here are some suggestions.
