"Dr. Sugar has developed beautiful resources that offer a guiding light to families navigating companion animal loss alongside their children. The digital and print books are written with a deep understanding of the role pets play in our lives and provide safe space and insight for parents and children experiencing this unique grief. I connected with Pawsitive Resources at the beginning of my Vet Social Work career and continue to return to these tools when I work with clients—they are integral to the support I provide at my hospital."
