The simple answer is yes. However grief is never simple.
It has been found most people go through five stages of grief when we suffer the loss of a relative, friend or pet. They are denial/isolation, anger, depression, bargaining, and acceptance.

It is amazing how much our dogs have become a part of our Christmas celebrations and what we do for them. We buy them presents and wrap them so we can sit and watch how they unwrap their gifts.

We don't know why there are dogs hell-bent on eating poop. We do know some are more discriminating than others. There are the ones that prefer only their own. There are those that prefer the tasty tidbits of other species; namely cats! Then there are those that are more than willing to try anything!
Originating in the Mediterranean area, these little dogs, with long, silky white hair, appear to float, rather than walk across a room. Believed to have gained their popularity among European royalty after the Crusades, Maltese were kept as companions and sometimes bed warmers!
If there is only one thing Labrador owners want to attain, that's effective Labrador Retriever training. Through training, a dog learns how to behave in ways acceptable by his human companions thus in turn can improve the pet-owner bond. Socialization, basic obedience training and housebreaking are best taught early on to prevent undesirable behaviors from developing. While these things are deemed as the most important one can teach his beloved pet, owners may also teach extra tricks that will definitely amuse everyone.
