What to Do Over the Loss of a Dog
This episode helped me immensely. I have felt a slow leak of daily grief since my Sheltie’s cancer diagnosis last year and subsequent passing. There were many blessings though as our vet came to our home and euthanized him here albeit on Valentines Day.
Thank you so much for this podcast. I have been listening for awhile now. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your compassionate and thoughtful words regarding loss. It’s such a hard burden to bear. It never seems to alleviate. 😥 TFW
