When our dog passed a few years ago, my husband especially, who hadn’t been through the loss of a pet before, had really intense grief. So did I. I really appreciated cards and comments from people who acknowledged how hard it is and also what an awesome dog he was. And if you have pics of Daisy that your brother might not have, you can share them with him.
If he has to put her down, and you have the opportunity to go with him, that would be good so he doesn’t have to be alone for that.
You could also get a portrait or keepsake made. My mom gave me a watercolor sketch she had done of my dog from a photo. You could even just get a nice photo framed.
