In Loving Memory Of My Dog
Our Life Journey
Life is a journey. My loving memory of my dog is a part of that journey. While we walk this path, many things can happen. Sometimes very good things happen to us, and other times very painful ones. Loss is definitely one of the most painful things that happen to everyone.
Losing our loved ones is more than just heartbreaking. We might even feel that our life makes no sense anymore.
We love our mothers and fathers, our sisters and brothers, and our friends.
But friends come in all shapes or sizes. Sometimes your best friend is a dog, a cat, or a bird.
You might love them to the moon and back, and just the thought of losing them terrifies you.
An Unshakeable Bond
Some people might not understand the bond between a human or a dog. They might take it lightly or even suggest to simply “get another dog.” Don’t take them seriously as they fail to understand.
But we know all too well, that the pain that the loss of a dog brings can be heart-shattering.
We understand what you are going through, and you are not at all strange to feel like that. Many people feel just the same.
However, what can we do to ease the pain? We won’t give up.
Well Deserved Rest
One aspect of realistically looking at this matter is the age aspect. Dogs and cats are built differently than people, and therefore their lifespan is much shorter.
They say one human year means seven dog years. So when your dog reaches 12 years, for example, he or she is 84 years old. When they reach 14, they are already 98 years old!
Their body is tired, and they are ready to rest. You gave them the best life possible, and they gave you the best life possible too! Now it’s time to rest.
One thing that can help ease the pain is, burying them and giving them a beautiful resting place. If you have a garden or a similar spot, that is a great place. In another case, you can decide to keep their ashes and keep them in a beautiful urn. If none of these is an option, you can always carry them in your heart!
You are always keeping a loving memory of your dog!
Whatever you do, don’t despair. Your dog loved you more than anything in the world, and they would want to see you happy!
After a while, you can think of getting a new friend, and give them the best life they could possibly have!
There are so many abandoned souls waiting to be rescued from shelters.
This is a beautiful quote that I would like to share with you;
“I have sometimes thought of the final cause of dogs having such short lives, and I am quite satisfied it is in compassion to the human race; for if we suffer so much in losing a dog after an acquaintance of ten or twelve years, what would it be if they were to live double that time?” – Sir Walter Scott
Dogs already give us everything and more. And after they’ve spent their time on earth, they depart to a well-deserved rest!
In the loving memory of your dog! Resting peacefully, but will never be forgotten.
Feel free to share this with anyone who is battling with the loss of a friend!
