It may be that the most profound benefit of having a pet
is that we come to understand better
the experience of death,
and, perhaps,
lose some of our fear of it in the process …
Death, our pets teach us, is necessary for new life to appear,
both for our pets and eventually, for us too.

The Nature of Animal Healing
