Book: So Easy to Love, So Hard to Lose

The first part of "So Easy to Love, So Hard to Lose" helps readers who have a sick or aging pet. When we know the end is approaching, we must tend to the pet's needs and also our own. This is a highly emotional time and support is needed. 
More often than not, we have to exercise our ability and our responsibility to provide euthanasia. But doing so is so very hard - it goes against our long mission to keep the pet happy and healthy. Requesting euthanasia feels incompatible with loving a pet. This so one of the most difficult aspects of pet loss grief and it sets the stage for guilt.

After a loss, pet owners experience emotional unheaval that can be devastating. Many aspects of the journey are shared by all or most owners after a loss, and these are discussed in depth.
After the loss, we grieve. Pet loss grief is different from any other type of grief. The grief is different because the bond is different.

This book takes the reader by the hand to travel through the emotional roller coaster of grief, to understand their journey and to guide them to a place where they understand what they are feeling, have paid tribute to their pet and can turn their grief back into love instead of allowing it to remain a festering sore. By reading the content and answering a series of carefully assembled questions, the reader finds support and their grief is alleviated, even though they feel that nothing will help.
