I think really acknowledging how much Daisy means to your brother and what an important relationship that is and how hard it will be/ is to lose her will go a longer way than you think. So often, when people lose pets that grief is as intense as if it were a person they lost. But in our society, the loss of a pet doesn’t carry the weight of losing a human loved on, and that kind of dismissiveness can add to a person’s grief. So validating his pain in whatever ways feel appropriate is going to be so helpful. Your brother is lucky to have a lucky and attentive sister!
