If you love animals, you understand the bond that is formed between pet and owner. No matter the length of time that the animal is part of your life, losing him or her is painful.
Sometimes a good way to deal with this pain is to write about it and share your story with others. On our sister site, Feathers Fins and Fur, one of our writers tells the story of her puppy, Shocker. Reading this will remind you how strong of a connection there can be between people and animals.
