Losing a pet is extremely challenging. They are our best friend, our family and we love them.  We miss them not being here when we wake up in the morning, going for the walks we both so loved, sitting outside on a warm summer evening, or watching them enjoy their favorite treat.  A thousand memories.  They are an important part of our every day,  until the day they are not. Whether suddenly or unexpectedly it matters not, we are here and they are not.   So the question becomes where are they, and will we see them again?   These are all valid questions and it is important for us to know the truth about these issues. The stories of a rainbow ridge and other magical places are a comfort during our loss but the real truth, how it really works, is even greater, and one that brings the hope of a brighter tomorrow.
