not talking to you

Our nine-year-old girl is in the midst of a bust up with her BFF and she's taking it really hard. This is our first nine year old and our first bust up, how can we help her get over it or help her understand what's happening?

This is out of the blue - last week everything was fine. Not sure but this has possibly stemmed from daughter being invited to join the school orchestra - first practice was Monday. Also daughter has a new puppy - BFF isn't allowed a pet. Both kids are very bright, and have been fast and firm friends since grade two.
Another factor could be that daughter has been told not to organise her own play dates, there has possibly been miscommunication around this. We get on well with BFFs parents, but have yet to chat to them.
I don't want to explain this in terms of jealously.
