When you suffer the loss of a pet, it is always a really hard time. One of the worst things you can do is suffer through the loss alone. Suffering amplifies all of your emotions, and loneliness plays a huge role in those emotions. When you are alone, you don't have anyone to step in and encourage you or relate with you. You are left to your own devices, and the results of that could be disastrous.
This is why pet loss support groups exist. They are a lot of people who have been through exactly what you have been through. They loved their pet just as much as you did, and they miss them just as much as you do. It may be hard to believe that, but it is true. People who have suffered the loss of a pet will be able to understand what you are going through. They can help you deal with your emotions.
Pet loss support groups exist all around the country, so it should not be too hard to find one. Look for one online that is close to you, and at least try it out. This could be a great opportunity for you to make some new friends, and talk in a safe place about your struggle with losing your pet. Give yourself a break from the loneliness, and try this out for at least a month. You may find that it’s the best, and most healthy, choice you made during this time of pain.

Losing a pet is heartbreaking. I think everyone who has ever lost a pet knows that it's like losing a member of your family. There are no words to describe the feeling of the loss that you feel. I have lost four pets in my life thus far, and each one of them has been just as sad as the last. I don't know if you can ever fully get over the loss of a beloved pet, but I do think that memoralizing them in some way helps with the grieving process.
It is always a dilemma on what we should do to memorialize our lost pet. There are not a lot of resources out there for people who are experiencing the loss of a pet. That factor is a significant reason why Best Friend Services was created. No one who has just lost a pet wants to spend hours on the internet looking for cremation services, urns, memorial plaques, etc.
What is the perfect way to honor a lost friend? Is it just simply burying them in the back yard? I think the more appropriate way to honor your pet is through memoralizing them in some fashion. That's why I love pet urns. Best Friend Services actually offers pet urns that look like garden stones that you can put in your garden. You should honor your pet in whatever you feel comfortable with, and pet urns are a great option. Let us help you through this difficult time of grieving a friend so that you can turn your pet's loss into pet memories.
