|It IS grieving... how you work your way through it is up to the way you deal with grief. We put down our previous dog, Nestle, at 14 y.o. I made her a scrapbook; wrote her a poem; and went on walks that we used to take together. I shared stories, and laughed and cried with the family. It took me more than a year to get ready for another dog. My son, who was Nestle's dad before joining the Marines, made a shadow box of some pics, her titles and her collar. She was a wonderful, quirky creature... and we were there for her at the end. In that, believe it or not, I take great comfort.
Laugh and cry and remember
