Pet Loss


Dealing with a pet loss is something not everyone understands. Unless you have a pet who you are attached too, understanding a bond between a pet and its owner is hard to see. But let me tell you, the bond we share is like no other. It cannot be held up to any other in comparison. And every bond is different. One could be like best friends share, another could be similar to a mother and her child. The distinction between this bond is truly up to the owner. How far they allow this love to fall into their hearts will determine this bond.

But the good thing is, if someone you know has lost their pet, you do not need to know the extent of their bond. The fact is, if their bond is quite close, you will most likely know just by their reaction to their loss or by the way they talked about their beloved friend before the passing. In any case, how you react to them should be the same as if they had lost a family member or a very close friend. Because in most cases, that is exactly what they have lost.

Send them a sympathy card or a condolence letter. Find bereavement phrases that would best describe your grief for them if you are not able to write one yourself. Send them flowers or a gift basket. But at the very least, acknowledge their loss. This is very real to them, and if you are a close family member or friend, you should be aware of this and treat it as such.

Tribute To A Best Friend
Sunlight streams through window pane
unto a spot on the floor....
then I remember,
it's where you used to lie,
but now you are no more.
Our feet walk down a hall of carpet,
and muted echoes sound....
then I remember,
It's where your paws would joyously abound.
A voice is heard along the road,  
and up beyond the hill,
then I remember it can't be yours....
your golden voice is still.
But I'll take that vacant spot of floor
and empty muted hall
and lay them with the absent voice
and unused dish along the wall.
I'll wrap these treasured memorials
in a blanket of my love
and keep them for my best friend
until we meet above.
