The pony my family has owned for seventeen years is being put down next week due to an incurable infection, and I am on the prowl for non-fluffy pagan material related to the death of a beloved pet. It seems like most of the stuff on death I can find is either about people dying, which doesn't quite fit, or is all "Ooh, the Rainbow Bridge!" which kind of bugs me. I have no firm beliefs about what happens after we die, and to pretend otherwise seems hypocritical.
I'm looking for ways to honor him now, and possibly some small thing to do during the euthanasia. Any tips, pointers, links, etc. would be deeply appreciated.
