Loss of a friend

My friend’s dog had been ill for weeks and yesterday she had no choice but to end his suffering. Like so many pets he had been family, and so much a part of her life.For some it is difficult to understand the bonds of affection that exist between persons and their beloved pets They often say things like”he was only an animal.,what’s the big deal?This observation completely misses the point because he was the one who for years greeted her at the end of the work day, and was a constant companion and friend. She never merely thought of him as an animal, but rather a friend and vital part of her life. I am sad for her loss, and hope that the wonderful memories of his loving presence will sustain her at this difficult time.
