Oh no! I am so sorry!

    Saying goodbye to a beloved dog is one of the hardest things many people ever go through. After I lost my dog Ace, it seemed that no one I knew fully understood the heartbreak I felt. I created this site so that no one else ever has to feel so alone or like no one understands just how hard it can be.
    . . .

    My experience taught me that dogs who share a very deep bond with their person stay around to comfort them. Your dog is there with you now, just as before, only you may not detect them with your 5 senses. If you can ease the thoughts of sadness and pain even for a few moments, and focus more on the love and gratitude you have for the life you shared, you just might feel your dog with your heart. For while their body may be gone, your dog’s energy, spirit and love are gifts that remain with you forever.
    . . .
    Connecting Heart to Heart is a simple, short meditation I created to help you
    feel your dog’s presence, by reconnecting you to the love, more than the pain, and reminding you that your bond is eternal. This beautiful guided meditation (Mp3) comes with a free digital copy of my Simple Strategies to help you even more during this difficult time.

    Common Reactions to Loss

    Why is This So Hard?!

    There are many reasons, that for some, losing a dog can be more difficult than losing a human family member or friend. Often, we spend more time with and give more attention to our dog than anyone else. They make us laugh, comfort us when we are sad and provide constant companionship when we let them.

    Ace & the Afterlife

    While I had believed in an afterlife for some time, it was still an esoteric concept, hard to wrap the brain around, simply because we just can’t know with the same kind of certainty that we know so many other things. It’s not tangible to us; it’s a concept, and that can be hard to fully embrace. Or at least it was, until Ace died.

    Personal Support

    Me & Ace

    I’m happy to “Chat” with you about your loss
    and offer you personal support.
    You can click on the (Chat) picture in the corner of Sara…
    she’s the sweet senior I rescued about a year
    after I lost my Soul Dog Ace, seen with me in the photo.
    Sadly, I said goodbye to Sara on 4/22/16. She was 14.5 yrs when she passed, just a week short of our two-year anniversary together.
    If you’d like, you can read Ace’s Story and
    how Sara & I came together, and even see my newest pup Gil, aka Gilly Skiggles!
    If you see that I’m not available, please send a note. I’d love to hear your story, too!
    I promise to get back to you as soon as possible.
    You don’t have to suffer the heartbreak alone!

    Peace & Purpose

    I’m a Certified Life Coach, and my hope is to help you find peace in this difficult time,
    and if you’ll let me, I can also help you find purpose.
    The greatest gift you can give your dog is to give a higher purpose and meaning
    to not just his life, but his (or her) death as well.
    I would love to help you do just that.

    Dogs are angels sent from heaven in order to help us be better people.
