Questions you may be asking
My dog died and I can’t seem to get over it. I feel kind of silly talking about it.
When others do not take a loss seriously, which is often the case with pet loss, it creates disenfranchised grief. You know how real your attachment was to your pet and therefore how real this grief is for you. You may benefit from sharing with other pet lovers who will understand. You may consider making it all the more real by honoring your lost pet with a memorial of some sort, a donation or volunteer activity.
