“Triage” for a dog owner

This afternoon, I was able to do “urgent care” triage with a neighbor who just rehomed the dog she has had for two years. She was going through the terrible process of loss and feeling loneliness and guilt. In the end, she  admitted that the dog’s new home would provide all the things she couldn’t (including vigorous exercise). She was able to take one small step on the road to recovery.
