Losing a loved one will never get easy. No matter how many times we have experienced it, outliving a person that is dear to us will remain as painful as the first time we had to go through the experience. And our capacity to feel immense sadness over losing a beloved is not limited to people we hold dear.

We can feel the exact same intensity of grief over the death of a pet, such as a dog for instance. Having a canine companion for a long time and witnessing them cross the rainbow bridge is devastating. This kind of devastation was collectively felt by the country upon hearing the news about the death of one of our most favorite canine celebrities.
