Today my dog Glory (almost 14) will cross the rainbow bridge. I have been brushing her, which she enjoys, looking at all the pictures of the wonderful times we have had together, reaching out to my friends, and am reading articles such as this. Based on past experience, the pain reduces with time. Lots of it.

My grandma's dog died this week from old age, she found him lying in a corner....We all miss him very much and we are making an album of pictures of him. I think this article will help my grandma.

My 6 mo. old puppy, Loki, was hit by a car and killed in front of my house yesterday. We just moved into this house 1 mo. ago and I was out back with my 3 kids getting ready for our July 4th cookout. A gate was left open and he ran out to greet a passerby across the street and he didnt make it. I am left with the shock of pulling his little body off the road, bagging him, then burying him, while trying to hold my family, especially my wife together. I cant get the image out of my head, and feel so guilty.--Help!!!

I also agree that it's okay to give your surviving pets more attention. How can you help it? They need to know that they are loved and you won't be the next to suddenly disappear. Since my dog passed last week, both his "mate" and the cat won't even let me out of their sight. If it wasn't for them I don't know how I would get through it. It's a comfort to see them sticking together, too.

I am coping with the loss of my dog, I have one dog still and it has not been easy for either one of us. My dogs are my children and they mean the world to me. I thought the article was slightly helpful until I discovered "Don’t overcompensate for the loss with extra attention to the surviving pet." But, later on it goes onto say Children may need extra care. I don't see the difference. The dogs grieve, and feel strong emotions like any child would. For me, I was completely turned off by this article and found it to be less than helpful.

Everyone deals with loss in different ways. You have to give yourself permission to grieve, cry, yell, whatever you need to do. Dealing with the death of a pet is losing a family member, sometimes more than just a family member! Give yourself permission.
