"The relationships between individuals and their pets are unique, and so is the grief experienced when a pet dies. No other relationship provides the same quality of companionship, reciprocal caring, and loyalty. Yet people are often stunned at the intensity and duration of their grief when a beloved pet dies.
Through the stories of sorrow, strength, and wisdom from people grieving the loss of a pet, Betty J. Carmack offers readers a virtual pet-loss support group. She illuminates the common experiences of pet death: feeling utter love and devotion for a pet, weighing the decisions surrounding treatment choices and euthanasia, honoring the pet through memorials and rituals, and beginning the healing process."
