What happens to you when your pet dies?
The death of a beloved pet can mean saying goodby to a best friend. Not only do you miss the companionship but this may have been your one source of unconditional and nonjudgemental love.
Our pets come to symbolize many things to each of us. To Judy Cameron, co-host, her dogs represented her children. To Judy Helm Wright, co-host, her dog filled an empty nest. Imagine how a pet may reflect the ideal mate or parent or companion--ever faithful, loyal and welcoming us daily. Can you see in your mind's eye how strong this bond may be?
We know how you feel, because we have felt the same way. We understand your pain and acknowledge your sorrow.
Give Yourself time to grieve
As coaches, authors and pet parents, we truly do understand your grief. We recognize that you do not need anyone else's approval to mourn the loss of your pet, nor do you need to justify your feelings to others. But, we offer a "Safe Place" to share your stories and be able to be open about your feelings right now.

As pet owners we are often concerned about what and how we can train our pets. But the truth is that pets often teach us. As a parent educator (and pet grief coach) I use animals to teach families how to relate to one another in daily life.
Today's show will be about some of the life skills we can learn from animals. Here are just some we will discuss;
To have unconditional love for others.
To be non-judgemental about race, gender, religion or nationality
To protect our loved ones
To be aware of other's feelings and show empathy and comfort
To show loyalty for family
To trust your instincts
To live in the moment--don't hold grudges
To keep our needs simple
To hide a little something away for a rainy day
To include excercise and naps in everyday.
You are invited to call in during the show or to leave comments that may be used in an up-coming book on Animal-Human Connection. Thanks for being part of our community of kind, thoughtful people who want respect for all.
Judy Helm Wright, Pet Grief Coach and author of "I Lost My Best Friend Today--Dealing With The Loss of a Beloved Pet."

Children handle pet death rather easily. It is the adult's reactions and actions that can leave a scar of misunderstanding. Most kids feel as strongly over the loss of the pet as adults do, but look to the adults in their lives to decide how to respond to the loss.
Many adults feel it is best to protect children from the upsetting truth of what has happened to their pet and so they lie! They pretend the pet "ran away" or perhaps "moved to the country." Without telling children the truth, it will cause them more pain and the potential for guilty feelings for not taking better care of their pet.
Were you aware that how a child hears about the first death in his life, usually a pet or grandparent, can color his future perspecive on death? Please see this great kids book; http://www.amazon.com/Miss-You-Pets-Heaven-Parent-ebook/dp/B00J0D707Y/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1416880152&sr=1-1&keywords=I+miss+you%3A+all+pets+go+to+heaven You will be glad you did.
