Pet Bereavement Support Group

The loss of a pet or animal to which one has become emotionally bonded can be an intense loss, comparable with the death of a loved one. Whilst there is strong evidence that animals can feel such loss for other animals, this community focuses on human feelings, when an animal is lost, dies or otherwise is departed.

    My fish just died

    Hi everyone my fish just died and I’m feeling pretty sad. It might seem strange but I really enjoyed taking care of him. I burried him and it was hard seeing him in the ground. I cleaned out his bowl and that felt hard to.

    I killed my dog

    I ran over my dog 9 days ago, I was going out to my mom's farm and usually let her out to run the last 1/4 mile, she loves to run.  I just let her out of the car and A: Why I chose to get on the phone and B: why I kept the car rolling ahead. I always get the car way out ahead of her and she chases it.  I keep playing this over and over in my head. I still can't believe I did this!  My...

    Lend Me A Pup

    LEND ME A PUP I will lend to you for awhile a puppy, God said, For you to love him while he lives and to mourn for him when he is gone.

He’ll bring his charms to gladden you and (should his stay be brief) you’ll always have his memories as solace for your grief. I cannot promise that...

    2 Years...

    Today officially marked 2 years since I lost my best and most loyal companion to me. Her name was Emmy. She was a 5 pound Malti-Poo dog, a mix between Maltese and Poodle. I loved her with all of my heart and still do. She is sitting in a specially crafted urn in one of our nicest cabinets in the house with her collar and tags still attached. I remember this day like it was yesterday though... I...

    TL:DR My dog got hit by a car because I didn't do everything I could to stop him going into the road.I have never owned dogs. My husband chose two medium sized dogs. We quickly learned that they were too much for us but we weren't going to give them up and risk them being euthanised. So I tried my best.He was working a night shift so I decided to take them for a walk through the forest in the...

    Missing my Jersey.

    Lost my baby girl on Thursday night. Rushed to the vet, but she passed on the way. My husband thinks that if we got there 5 min. sooner, they could have saved her. Are you kidding me? She was 15 years old with Canine Addison's. We had her rushed to the vet a few times in crisis and put on IV for several days...she was on almost $300/mnth in medication for Addisons, arthritis, to stop bladder...
