I lost my first pet not that long ago and he is a dog who grew up with me and was an important part of our family. It has been a struggle not to have my dog around and I was worried how I would get through the day at first. There was just no animal like him and I know that there will never be a dog quite like him and it is hard to get over that.
Finding some great books has helped me to cope with the loss of my pet. I have realized that I am not crazy and that what I am experiencing is normal. It has been really healing to hear about other people who have gone through the same thing and to get inspired by how others have dealt with pet loss. I have been enjoying finding hope and encouragement.
I still have really busy days and lots of things to do, and it has been getting easier to get through everything with my coping with sorrow on the loss of your pet book. It was really hard for me to do all of my usual errands and tasks at first, but now I have gotten through busy days like I did before I lost my pet. It feels good to be getting back to my normal routine.
