Hi, Trevor. Because Rex was a dog, you may feel that the depth of your grief from his passing is not being fully recognized by others. This is called disenfranchised grief and it happens when your grief doesn't neatly fit into society's views about grief and loss. This can be especially isolating and painful. Your grief for Rex is real and significant and deserves acknowledgment and support.
