This past weekend was not a good weekend for me because I had to put down my very first pet I have had since childhood. If you have ever experienced the loss of a pet, you know how hard it is. Pets aren't just pets, they are a huge part of the family and they bring unexplainable joy to our lives. The best thing about pets is that they are pure. They know no evil; they are wired to love, unless they have been mistreated. If you're also going through the loss of a pet, I have found a couple ways to cope with the grief.
