A Guide to Mourning, Remembering, and Healing
Compassionate support and practical suggestions to help you understand your grief and being to heal
When a special pet dies, you may struggle with your grief. You may be overwhelmed by the depth of your sadness. But as Dr. Wolfelt explains, your grief is a reflection of the love you had for the animal. The more profound the attachment, the more profound your grief is likely to be. This is normal and natural. This compassionate, practical guide helps you understand and express your feelings of loss so that you can begin to heal. Topics covered include common feelings, euthanasia, helping children, the six needs of mourning, ceremony ideas, and considering a new pet. Space is provided for you to capture memories of your special companion animal. Throughout, other pet lovers share their stories of love and loss.
