Recently my dog, who was my companion and best friend passed away. She was a joyful and wonderful friend to me and provided me with more love and blessings than I can count. The emptiness that was felt was similar to the emptiness when my husband passed. You may ask, how do you compare the 2; it's easy both provided unconditional love, acceptance, friendship, companionship and love.
We can grieve out pets as we do humans in the same way. If you have a pet that has passed and you feel their emptiness, it is okay to celebrate them and remember them in the same way you would anyone who has passed. Reflect today on what your pet has brought to you and how they may have helped you through a difficult time. I will forever hold my Ellie in my heart and my mind. ~~Many blessings, Cammie
