    • Help your children and other family members deal with their grief
    • Deal with people who "just don't understand"
    • Help surviving pets cope with the loss of a missing companion
    • Come to terms with the guilt we so often feel when a pet dies
    • Handle the agonizing decision of euthanasia
    • Choose the best and most comforting "final resting place" for your pet
    • Determine when and how to bring a new companion into your home (how soon is too soon?)
    • Improve your chances of recovering a lost or stolen pet
    • Help a friend cope with loss
