Our pets hold a special part in our lives and our family. They give us unconditional love and companionship. Having had a pet all my life I know the joy and happiness they bring to our lives and also the sadness when they have passed away.
Pets have their own character, which makes them unique. We need to grieve our loss when our pet passes and say goodbye. For a child the passing of their beloved pet may be their first experience with death and the cycle of life. It is important to acknowledge the significant period your pet shared with your family by respectfully laying your pet to rest.
