Would you take it much harder as well? Why? Does it make you feel guilty?

Does this mean we value the life of a dog much higher than a human being? Isn't that so very very wrong?
My dogs are my friends and they are part of my family. I don't feel guilty at all to be devastated when my canine friends die. In fact, in a way, I feel sad for people who don't understand my devastation because obviously they have never experienced that special love and bond. Isn't that sad?
