In reply to guess we should have lost a pet not a father :( (nm), posted by zenhussy on January 16, 2007, at 15:13:05
That IS NOT a sensitive thing to say. A pet becomes a PERSON to the one who loves it. I, myself, lost my 17 year old dog, due to injuries that I caused her, and I still have not come to terms with her loss, 4 years later, yet, I lost my mother only 2 years ago, and it has been easier to live with HER loss.
With my dog, guilt has raised it's ugly head, with my Mum, there was not a lot of guilt
