The Hardest Part

Possibly the hardest part of pet ownership is when it comes to an end, when we have to say goodbye to the friend and companion who has become such an integral part of our life. 

No matter how long we have with them, goodbye always comes too soon. That loss can weigh heavy on us, but there is support for those who need it.

On this episode of The American Canine Podcast, we meet Connie Starr, a woman who used her own grief over the loss of her dog to inspire her effort to form a support group for others facing that same struggle
