The pain of losing someone dear is no less deep when that individual is an animal. Give yourself permission to grieve the loss. There's no single method or timeline for moving on, and the only rule is to steer clear of those people who are unable to understand. In the meantime, reach out to friends or family who can be supportive. You may want to consider organizing a memorial event for your dog, creating a scrapbook or piece of art, or perhaps even joining a pet loss support group. Some people find that the best medicine is adoption — providing a loving home for another dog in need.
