Useful Pet Loss/ Pet Urn ResourcesThere are so many good resources that speak to the loss of your pet. The grieving process is similar to the loss of a family member or good (human) friend.
I think the one distinction that stands out is society's expectations of how you should feel. Society sometimes tells us that we should not be as sad as we feel, as a pet is 'less valued' than a person.
Emotion is emotion. Grief is grief. We receive unconditional love every single day from a pet that is in our lives. That can create a huge emptiness when they pass. And that should never, ever be discounted.
Here are a few links for reading about the phases of grief and how to handle it with yourself, and your family.

* The Humane Society of the United States addresses grief and also how it affects seniors: Humane Society: Death of Your Pet

Special We Are The Cure Pet Urns
I had the wonderful honor of being asked to create a special line of pet urns for We Are The Cure. I have written about them before, as I am also a guest blogger there. They are fully committed to finding a cure for cancer in dogs.
It seems to be so very pervasive. I get calls for orders all the time because people have lost a pet to cancer. These wonderful and amazing people are doing the work that needs to be done!
You can visit them at We Are The Cure, you can see my special line of urns at this link: pet urns.
Thank you. And, again, they really are deserving of your support. Can you imagine the wonderful, amazing, glorious day when cancer is just a thing of the past?
