Thank you for sharing more information about your pet.

I know from first-hand experience it's so hard to lose a beloved pet.  I will do my best to keep that in mind if you are in or near that stage with your pet. 

I try to focus on the joy and love of our pets rather than the loss, but I want to make sure you know that I care deeply about your special connection and I hope to better express my sympathy to those who need it.
