Around this time every year I always stop to be thankful for what I have and most grateful for but it’s also a time when I reflect on losing two beloved pets. What’s so ironic is that I lost them years apart in the same month all due to old age. It’s something that all pet owners wish won’t happen but will inevitably face. Today I just want to pay tribute to my beloved dogs Ginger, Remy and Tigger.
“My Friend, today you’ve left a space in my heart…a void that not anyone can make. To do this one has to unselfishly give of one’s self. You did just that and more. You gave yourself freely, shown your love openly and unbiased, gave your ear for someone to bend and comforted a cold and lonely body. With your warmth and tenderness, your companionship is unmatched and your heart is forever captured. Right here in my private treasure chest…where your love is kept safe…until it is ready to be freely shared to the one who is worth and unselfish. The one who will learn as well as accept the gift of unconditional love. But until that time comes, my heart will not be whole…for the space that was left will be a most tremendous task to fill. Because the love that I’ve received is but one of a kind…that is unique only to you…My Friend.”
