What do we do about getting another pet? Russell Friedman and his colleagues, author of The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss, is an expert in grief and applies his understanding to the very real grief we human feel when our pets die.

    The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss: Russell Friedman

    in Psychology

    The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss: Russell Friedman


    Your relationship with your pet is special--it's a bond that is very different than those that human beings share with each other. When a beloved pet passes away, people often resort to incorrect mechanisms to deal with the grief, such as trying to move too quickly past the  loss dismissing the real impact), or even attempting to replace the pet immediately. However, these are merely two myths out of six that the authors discuss and dismantle in The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss. Based on the authors' Grief Recovery Method®, this book  addresses how losing a pet is different from losing a human loved one, and ultimately, how to move on with life.

    Grieving the Loss of a Pet- 7 Things Not to Say to a Friend

    in Pets

    When a friend or loved one has lost their pet, it is often very hard to know what to say to help.  With over 200 million pets owned in the US most of us will, at on time or another, be called upon to support an important person in our life in pet loss.


    Bellow are some words NOT to say to someone who is grieving the loss of a pet.



    1. it ws just a dog (cat, horse, vird, rabbit, gerbil, etc.)
    If losing a pet is doing this to you, I would hate to see what you would do if you lost something really important, like a child.
    At least you don't have the kitty litter (carpet spots, horse stall, cage) to deal with
    "They are in a better place"
    You can always get another dog (cat, horse, rabbit, gerbil)
    I thought you were prepared for this or You might have known this was coming.
    Enough time has passed, you should be getting over this by now or it's time to move on.


    While it may be very hard to know what to say, an important part of support is knowing what not to say.

    Truthsharks Radio Presents: Prophet or Loss?/Unity

    in Christianity

    Welcome to the WVEB presentation of Prophet or Loss?, a division of Truthsharks Radio. I am your host and friend, DJ Southeast Vince, comin' at ya' all the way from a place called Durham, NC. On this show, I will tackle the errors that are prevalent in today's churches such as mandatory tithing, manipulated offerings, church hierarchies, the church building as the house of God, spiritual submission, name-it-and-claim-it, and whatever. If you are an agnostic, atheist, or simply a hater of Christianity, this show is not for you. If you have a question or comment, feel free to call in and state your case, just be sure to season your comments well with respect. So come listen to a man who is black, Christian, and conservative.


    Quite often, you'll hear preachers spouting off about the issue of unity, but what does it mean to them? Chick it out on the next broadcast.
