Soul Love: How A Dog Taught Me To Breathe Again

Grief, growth, love and life are on tap today as Teresa Bitner, the author of Soul Love: How A Dog Taught Me To Breathe Again, is joining Kathy on today’s episode of Enlightened By Dogs!

We talk about how a dog taught Teresa and her sons how to live, love and breathe again after their family is struck by tragedy. Teresa then takes us on a journey of grief stages and how we can navigate that difficult path … and how we can support our friends and loved ones when they are grieving.

One of the topics we cover is the added layer of grieving the loss of a beloved dog … and how so many around us don’t understand the depth of our grief, and expect us to ‘get over it’ quickly because it’s just a dog.

Teresa is coach, speaker, and author specializing in resiliency, change, and loss. She partners with those who have been knocked down by life who want to build resiliency and move forward to a bold life.
