Losing a pet can be like losing a piece of you. I speak from experience have lost my beautiful Labrador, Chloe, a little over a year ago. She wasn’t my first dog to pass, but she’s the most recent and I am still unsure if my age and being older made the loss all the harder to cope with or if it is deeper than that.
We are working with a client on a particular campaign to bring some more dog owners stories about grief, losing pets and circumstances around – such as how you coped and what time off work you took (as well as the reasons you gave) to the forefront of the subject and how your pet shaped your past, or future.
It’s a nice way to make them famous and give them a legacy more can read about, don’t you think?
If you took a week or so off work and have a story to tell, we’d love to hear from you.
Please tell us about your dog, the loss and how it happened, as well as your time off situation (leaving your email address behind your username if commenting in the comments section of the post) and we will contact you later today or Monday, latest.
Thanks for taking part and sharing.
