Resources for when your dog is dying or has passed

I put this Grief List together last week for a friend of a friend who lost their pup to cancer. I thought I would share it with you all in case someone you know needs it (or maybe you need it yourself). Grief has felt joyous this past week. I’ve been able to think about Desh and smile. I’ve been able to appreciate him and our time together. I’ve noticed the space that I have for other animals and humans because he’s not here. I knew someday I’d feel this way. It feels nice to meet myself here as planned. 

This list is for those who are anticipating the loss of a pet and those who already have. I’m sure some of these would be helpful for those losing or those who have lost another human too. I hope it helps someone else feel less alone!
