Thank you for all the kind words yesterday about my family’s loss of our dog Bingo yesterday.
Today has been a sad day as you can imagine. As I’ve said before, my dog was more of a shadow than anything. She followed me everywhere, especially in the morning as I got ready. Probably since she knew I would be leaving the house to go to work, she always wanted to stick close to me until I left.
As I walked out of bed and didn’t have to step over her, or when I showered when she normally laid on the mat waiting for me, I was sad knowing she would never be there again. I’m sure when I go home in a few hours, not being greeted by her at the front door will bring up that sadness as well. Her tail a wagging as she was so excited.
My goal this post is not to be sad, but to celebrate what many people have found in their lives. Our Pet’s are our family. Especially for those like myself that never had children. They become your children. Especially after 14 years together.
But a dog’s love is different. I love cats, but they are independent and can have an attitude at times. But that is part of their charm.
A dog however, they only want to love you and for you to love them back.
They just want to let you know that they will always be there for you…
They teach us to just relax and let the wind blow in our
fur I mean hair and enjoy the ride…
Thank you to those of you that shared your story of a lost pet and for those of you who shared that you recognize that your beloved “child” is nearing the end as well.
Fill your heart with happy memories. Sure they might make you sad, but even in death, our dogs continue to show us the love they had for us. All you have to do is revisit these memories.
~~~till we laugh again~~~
