Pet loss quotes

At some point in our lives each one of us must deal with the difficult subject of the loss of a pet.  This is a really hard time for many people.  It’s natural and good to grieve the loss of a pet.  After all they have shared so much with us for so long that they become a part of the family.  This bond and my way of grieving is why Pet Loss Quotes was created.

There are 5 stages to emotionally coping with death.  The stages are Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression & finally Acceptance.  They are popularly known by the acronym DABDA.  I’m not going to go into details on all of them, but I do want to focus on Depression and Acceptance.  With the right words, both of these stages can be helpful in dealing with pet loss.  Quotes have always helped me.  They give me the words that I need to hear and comfort me.

  1. Depression — “I’m so sad, why bother with anything?”; “I miss my loved one, why go on?”

During the fourth stage (depression), the person begins to understand the certainty of death.  Because of this, the individual may become silent, refuse visitors and spend much of the time crying and grieving.  This process allows the person to disconnect from things of love and affection.  It is not recommended to attempt to cheer up an individual who is in this stage.  It is an important time for grieving that must be processed.  Depression could be referred to as the dress rehearsal for the ‘aftermath’.  It is a kind of acceptance with emotional attachment.  It’s natural to feel sadness, regret, fear, and uncertainty when going through this stage.  Feeling those emotions shows that the person has begun to accept the situation.

The best thing to do when a person is in this stage is to simply let them know that you are there for them and that you care for them.  Don’t try to cheer them up, but let them know that you are there for them during these difficult and trying times.  When dealing with depression pet loss quotes can provide those words that most people find difficult to write themselves.

  1. Acceptance — “It’s going to be okay.”; “I can’t fight it, I may as well deal with it.”

In this last stage, individuals begin to come to terms with mortality, or that of a loved one, or other tragic event.  This stage varies according to the person’s situation; each person must pass through his or her own individual stages of dealing with the grief.

 In this Acceptance stage pet loss quotes can make us or others feel better.  It shows us that we aren’t alone and that others have faced similar situations before us.  Most importantly pet loss quotes help us grieve the loss of our pet.

You’ll never be able to replace your pet, but you can remember them and find comfort in these pet loss quotes.
