Re: Loss of a pet
I'm sorry for the loss of your pet, redsfanmia. Grieving and a sense of loss is all natural and something you need to go through. Taking your long and faithful companion for that last car ride is a tough thing.
I've always thought the depth of the feelings you have after they are gone reflect how good of a pet and a companion they were. So, in a way, be thankful for these emotions because it means your pet had such a powerful and positive impact on your life and that is a good thing.
We've had discussion like this in here before and the term we use is VORD, Value Over Replacement Dog. Search for that and you'll see many wonderful RZ writings on the loss of pets.
