A new support group for grief when your dog dies.

by Jon Michaels

I've always thought Sioux Falls has a support group for everything you can imagine. A lot of media have been buzzing about a new idea, a support group for the grief of losing your best friend, your pet.

Two ministers, Kristi McLaughlin and Kristi Holler along with Mary Mortenson talk about the many people who need help in their grief progress, especially young people who have known their pet their whole life. Because pets only live an average of 15 years, their death teaches many their first experienceof death.
