This morning on my facebook newsfeed I saw that a friend’s dog had recently passed and it broke my heart.
The hardest part of owning a dog is having to say goodbye. Coping with the loss of a pet is extremely difficult, as the bond you share with your furry friend is unlike any relationship you will ever have with a human. Dogs offer unconditional love and companionship. For those who are dealing with the loss of a pet, I encourage you to try to see it as an opportunity to grow emotionally, and to always remember that both of your lives were richer because you had each other in it.
Here’s a photo I love that proves that all dogs really do go to heaven..
Today I’m thinking of Pepper & Dusty, the black and yellow lab I grew up with. I’m a firm believer that growing up with these dogs taught me how to trust, respect, and most importantly – love unconditionally.
