    Awww sorry to hear that - must be very hard for all.

    You can try some calmatives, and maybe a t-shirt or towel he used to have to help.

    I would also have the dog visit a vet as older dogs can develop CCD and onset may be coincidental to the loss in the family.

    The dog will also mourn, maybe not as a human would but I certainly believe that they experience loss. Can the dog sleep up with her? Perhaps the two of them could engage in some T-touch which helps relax both of the them and reinforce their bond - which will benefit them both.
