The Rainbow Bridge and How to Cope With the Loss of a Dog
A. S. Turnbull once said, “Dogs’ lives are too short. Their only fault, really.” Truly the only drawback of having a dog is that we don’t get to have them long enough. Today, we celebrate our beloveds that have gone before, outline some excellent coping tips from Psychology Today, and share some heartfelt Puppy Parent Replies commemorating their rainbow bridge travelers.
Research shows us that grieving the death of our companion animals can be just as painful, if not more than, grieving the loss of a family member or friend. There are helpful steps to take immediately after your pet’s passing, and also key self-care strategies that can help someone process through their grief experience.
Grieving is a highly personalized, individualistic experience that is influenced by culture and social groups. The process in which you might experience the pain of losing your pet might look immensely different from even a direct family member living in the same house.
