SORT BY Relevancy
There are very distinct, yet overlapping, phases of grief. We go through the stages in various orders and in varying degrees on the road to recovering from any loss. If we lose a jacket at the ballpark, we may go through all the stages in a few minutes. If the jacket was one that was given to us by our brother on our birthday, it may take much more time.
If the animal was a family pet and stayed outside, it may not hit us as hard as if he were our own companion and greeted us each night when we came in the door. If your pet was a companion and best friend, the mourning will be a deep one.
1. Shock/Denial/Numbness. We can not believe this has happened to us. Our body and emotions numb themselves against the pain. The mind denies the loss. Often we will say things like "This can't be true." One of the valid reasos for memorials and funerals is to acknowledge that death did take place.
2. Fear/AngerDepression. After the numbness wears off and we are once again able to feel, then all of our repressed feelings come roaring back. Sometimes these feeling ared not rational at first and can seedk someone to blame, either an outsider or ourselves. "I can't share how sad I am about my dog, because my co-workers will think I am crazy." "But, on the other hand, I inquire about their child's cold and buy their stupid Girl Scout cookies to support them. It isn't fair!" "Oh God, please don't let me start crying at work again. I heard someone call me a drama queen and say; It's only a dog, not a child."
3. Understanding/Acceptance/Moving on.
4. New Hurts May Trigger Old Wounds.
Below are some of the most frequent questions we get at www.deathofmypet.com We will go over the answers to these questions about pet loss and how it affects those of us who are are suffering.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PET LOSS
& THE GRIEF OF LOSING A BEST FRIEND.
How is it possible that I am sadder with the loss of my dog than with the loss of close family members?
For many people the love and companionship of a pet may be the only or certainly the strongest bond of unconditional love they have experienced. It is also possible, like many of my clients, which you have been strong and practical while caring for ailing parents or friends. But suddenly, your best friend and closest companion is dying and it is the last straw on a pile of buried emotions. It may be that your pet was your “safe place to go and soft spot to land.”
2. I feel like I am going crazy. Am I ever going to feel normal again?
Yes, you will feel emotionally better but different than before. You will eventually remember and rejoice in the many happy times you had with your pet. You will be able to reflect on the many life lessons you shared.
3. How long will I grieve my pet?
All of our emotions are individual. When we love deeply, we grieve deeply. Grief coaches often say that it takes about a year before your loss is the first thing you think of in the morning and the last thing you think about at night.

Property Rights and Wrongs: African-Americans at the Courthouse with The Legal Genealogist
From being treated as property to having their property stolen by those who used the law against the freedmen, African Americans' experience at the courthouse had only one bright spot: it created records for the genealogist-descendants.
A Certified Genealogist with a law degree, The Legal Genealogist Judy G. Russell examines the interplay between genealogy and the law. She is a lecturer, educator and writer who enjoys helping others understand a variety of issues, ranging from using DNA in family history to the effect the law had on our ancestors’ lives and the records they left behind.
A graduate of George Washington University and Rutgers School of Law-Newark, Judy is a Colorado native with roots deep in the American south on her mother’s side and entirely in Germany on her father’s side. She's a member of the National Genealogical Society, the Association of Professional Genealogists, and, among others, the state genealogical societies of New Jersey, North Carolina, Virginia, Texas and Illinois. She has written for the National Genealogical Society Quarterly and the National Genealogical Society Magazine .
Do Dogs Get Lonely?
Yes, they do and they also get bored. They may not be able to share their emotions in a verbal way, but you will know by the actions, reactions and torn up kitchen garbage cans when left alone for too long. Dogs are pack animals and do not tolerate long periods of being alone. We do not know if they feel the emotions of lonliness as humans do, they do exhibit signs that being alone is not good for them.
We will discuss various ways to bond with your dog or animal and make seperations more easily tolerated by the entire "fur family."

Roger Whitney known as The Retirement Answer Man. He began his career as a Financial Advisor in 1991. This allowed him to witness first-hand the rise and fall of the “new economy” and the Dot-com bubble that ended in 2000. This experience solidified for him that financial management is about people, not money, and that they are served best by advisors that are fiduciaries to their clients and have the heart of a teacher. In 2003 he left, at the time, the largest private bank in the world and, with two wonderful partners, established WWK Wealth Advisors

Today's Life Interrupted Radio's guest Judy van Niekerk points out, it’s not just about leaving a legacy, it’s about creating a living legacy. Judy’s life story could have turned out so different. Yet, she didn’t let a life of childhood torture stop her.
Years ago, after waking up from yet another “overdose coma,” Judy had a “major light-bulb moment” where she discovered “What she was here to do.” She garnered up the courage to share her gifts and captured global media attention, including The BBC, RTE and Cosmopolitan and many others. This one act of courage, where she courageously shared her story of sexual abuse from her father caused the reporting of sexual assault in Ireland to increased by 75%.
Today, Judy is committed to making a difference based on what she learned by surviving her traumatic childhood challenges. She now works tirelessly to empower people to love and honor themselves regardless of what happened in their lives.
Her latest revolution is to empower women through “The Digital Bra,” a revolutionary hi-tech solution to a serious problem for women around the world by making customized bras for women irrespective of their shape and size. "Women deserve the perfect fit!" Judy shared that “The Digital Bra (www.thedigitalbra.com) is not just a high-tech innovation. It allows women to finally embrace and love their bodies just like Judy learned to do as she discovered how to capitalize from her challenges." Judy will share with us:
• How to survive, move through and THRIVE,
• How to connect to your greater self to find your gifts,
• How to create a permanent state of inspiration, compassion and self love.
Listen to Judy’s truly inspirational story of courage, championing and conquering.

Ahmad Davis - In 1999 I was divorced and a fully employed homeless man living out of the back of my Ford Explorer. During that time I began to take control of my finances by telling my money what to do, paying off debt, and accumulating thousands in savings and even picked up a second job. After a few weeks I wrote my first tithe check. I recognized a few years later, that God reconnected me with an old friend and I moved into a spare bedroom of his a few days later. During that time, I paid off over $10,000 in debt, saved thousands of dollars, and started taking LOTS of vacations that did not have a bill follow me home. In 2005, through thoughtful prayer, I became a Certified Financial Coach. Since then I have helped

Yes, animals do feel and express deep emotions just like their human counter-parts. They become depressed when a companion dies and mourn for their loss. See http://www.deathofmypet.com for more information.
Many experts (myself included) agree that animals, birds and other animals feel their live deeply. This isn't a new topic. In fact, Charles Darwin wrote about animal emotions way back in 1872. His studies were on dogs who grinned and monkeys who chuckled when tickled.
Pure Joy in Animals
Just now, our dog Rosie heard my husband say "Think I am going to take the dog on a walk in the sunshine." Rosie went from a solid sleep to bouncing with joy and anticipation. Was our dog grinning? Oh yes, she was one happy camper. She knew that a walk in the sunshine meant a trek to the river and an opportunity to play in the leaves and chase sticks and snap at flies and all sorts of wonderful exciting times with her "fur family."
Barbara King, professor of anthroopology at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA says: "Tody, after thousands of years of friendship, there is a great deal of attunement between humans and dogs, not only in terms of comprehension of each other's gestures and body language but also emotionally."
