Dogs are our close companions because they provide love, comfort, safety, warmth, happiness, laughter, and friendship. They teach us to have more patience with life and to enjoy the simple things. Losing such a good friend is heartbreaking.

Locking away grief doesn’t make it go away. Express it. Cry, scream, pound the floor, and talk it out. Do what helps you the most. Don’t try to avoid grief by not thinking about your pet; instead, reminisce about the good times.

“Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet.”  – Colette

You may be out of our sight, but never out of our heart or mind. You are missed.
