Bereavement and Companion Animals.
Weisman, Avery D.
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v22 n4 p241-48 1990-91
Describes a bereavement counseling program at a humane society and reports findings that confirm parallels between human and animal bonding and bereavements. The act of consenting to euthanasia was particularly disturbing. Most of the bereaved owners reported depths of feeling that were unique and in most cases beyond those experienced in other deaths.
