The death of a four-legged member of the family is a traumatic and emotional time. It's not uncommon for people to be as overcome by grief at the loss of a canine companion as a human one. Chatting with others can help a lot in the healing process. Plant a tree in the garden as a special tribute, or make a scrap book of all the special times. Drop in at your local vet clinic and talk with the staff about your loss. Veterinary staff have a lot of experience with end of life and can be a great source of comfort. Pawclub can even put you in touch with a qualified veterinarian who will willingly help you with your loss by email if you prefer.
