The death of a beloved companion animal can cause as much grief as the death of a human being, and it may be more difficult to bear if others fail to appreciate how acute the pain of loss can be. This poem provides the comfort that helps to bring acceptance of a pet’s death. The book includes addresses of societies that offer grief counseling to those who have lost a companion animal.
