On March 31, 2017, Max’s Healing Hearts Community hosted its first FB Live broadcast with Adam Clark, expert on the human-animal bond. During this 30 minute session, called Who Rescued Whom, Adam and moderator Dyana addressed topics such as:
–Is being so darned attached to our pets healthy?
–The difference between human loss and pet loss, and whether there is a difference
–How, as pet parents, we can truly listen to their needs when they don’t speak
–How to make the best decisions on behalf of our pet(s)
–Why the pain of dealing with illness, loss, or even thinking about loss can be dangerously intense sometimes, and examples of how people have managed it.
–The unique concept of animal “partnership,” & how to deal with those who don’t get it
