Loss of a Dog

We felt it important to touch on this topic even though it is a very sad one.

Please share your story ...

How did you cope with the loss of your pet? This is a subject which is hard for me to write about as luckily I have not yet experienced it.

However, we all know that it is a inevitable part of life. Please share your story...or even if you just want to write in to remember and share great stories about your bestest friend!
