For many of us, it is through being a pet parent that we have experienced unconditional love, perhaps that is why the loss puts us into such a turbulent whirlwind of emotions and yet, I believe to not have had the experience would be a far greater loss. Having our pet for whatever time we are given is both a gift and a blessing.
