Here Are Some Ways To Help You Cope When Your Pet Crosses Over The Rainbow Bridge

When we lose our best friend, any tips that can help us cope is welcome. Here’s a great video that you can use as a helpful guide during this very rough journey. Remember, there are no rules. There are no exacts.

We all grieve differently and we all heal differently. Do not allow others to dictate to you how you should feel. They are not inside your body and they did not experience exactly what you do, day in and day out. There is also no rush. Some people seem better quicker. Some do not. Again, this is not a judgement or a rule.

Many people feel ready to move on and adopt a pet sooner than others do. Again, this is not a rule. You are ready when you are ready, period. A new pet will not replace your the one you lost. It’s not about replacing him or her but to fill your life with more love. That other love never goes away.

I also feel it is important to memorialize your pet in a way that makes you feel good. It’s not just about a sort of closure. It’s about a celebration of their life with you.
