You made a brave and wise decision to talk about what you are going through right now. It sounds like you have been pretty upset about your dog’s passing. Losing a pet is a very painful loss. A dog can easily be a best friend, or companion to us and truly become a part of our families. It is okay to cry about your dog, and it is okay to be sad, but you don’t want to stay in that place forever. If you feel that the pain is still very strong it may be time to talk to a trusted adult about your feelings.</span></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>It might be helpful to find ways you can remember your dog, on the anniversary of a dog’s birthday, passing or other memorable moment, to take the time to do something special to remember your friend.
