Episode Description

We know in today’s world it is much more common for people to accept and even understand how those of us who are pet parents feel when we lose our beloved companions. Our pets, no matter the species, are members of our family and we hurt when they transition. However, there are still the insensitive and unenlightened among us who make cold or insensitive remarks as we deal with the loss. For example, some might ask, upon seeing an elderly dog, “how much longer do you think he’ll last?” or “when are you going to get another one?”, or “well, it was just a cat”. Can you imagine saying that to someone whose spouse just passed away? It’s an extra burden on the grief process. The good news is that you can survive and thrive through the process. We will talk today with Animal Communicator, Joan Ranquet. She has worked with hundreds of pet parents through these transitions and she will share some her tips for thriving through the loss. By the way, do you have a “bucket list” for your dog?
