Sometimes it's hard to understand why life throws us a curve, the way it did Ozzie, Romeo and their Mom last week. We want to extend our heartfelt sympathy to that family in their loss of David. Jen's words about their final day together was so touching, and we're sure that she will find comfort in the months to come by reliving those happy memories they made together.
A lot of people are surprised to find that pets can grieve the loss of a family member, too. Maybe not in the same way as people, because we don't understand the big picture like our humans, but we do feel a loss. We miss our usual routine, the presence of that special someone, and we pick up on the emotions of others around us.
Dogs are wonderful for giving comfort, but we also need comfort ourselves. We need the reassurance that we are still loved, and that things will get better with time. I guess dogs and people aren't all that different, after all, huh?
Give someone a hug today. You never know...
