No longer at our feet but, forever in our hearts

Best Friends come into our lives and leave Paw Prints all over our hearts.

Many pet parents don’t consider their pets as pets but rather members of the family. Treating and spoiling them like children is a testament to the relationship between humans and pets. When you lose a pet, it is like losing family member. National Pet Memorial day is a day to celebrate all pets past and present and to bring closure to the departure of our loved ones. Here are a couple ideas to celebrate your late pet’s life and the impact they had on yours!

Plant a tree – Pick a nice shady spot in your backyard or in your local community and plant a tree or shrub in their honor. If they had a special or favorite spot in the house, commemorate it with a house plant. If they liked the yard, create a special healing garden memorial and build a bench like this one to really make it a special project.

Help animals in need – Shelters and rescue centers are always looking for extra volunteers and donations. Find your local shelter and donate towels, food and toys. It might be too soon or hard to adopt but helping to volunteer on adoption days to help other animals find forever homes. Who knows, you might even fall in love with another fur ball.

Memorial Frames/Keepsake box – Do you have a favorite photo of your beloved pet? Maybe with their favorite toy, doing something silly or a great portrait? Display it in a classic Wooden Frame or this cute Dog Bone frame to always keep their memory around. Still have their favorite toy, leash or clothing? Store their precious items in a Memorial Box big enough to hold all of their favorite things and your special memories.

 

Hold a Memorial Ceremony – Give your pet a proper Memorial ceremony, invite friends and family over to say sweet things and remember the joy they brought. Reflect on silly and cute times or a moment your beloved pet helped you through a hard time. This ceremony could include planting a tree, creating a memory box or simply lighting a candle and is designed to bring closure after a loss.

Memorial Headstone – Commemorate their grave site OR your special healing garden/ceremony with a special headstone. Dignified and classic, this Engraved Black Marble Stone is perfect headstone for your late pet. Suitable for your outside healing garden and classy enough to compliment any home décor.

Unique Ways To Remember A Pet After They Are Gone

petsPeople love their pets and we treat them as if they’re members of the family. When a pet passes, it can be a very dark time in our lives. The loss of a pet often times feels like the loss of a close relative and is likely to affect both physical and mental health. Researchers from the University of Hawaii’s animal science department did a study to determine the level of grief and stress that a pet owner experiences when a pet dies. The veterinary clinic interviewed 106 pet owners and found that 52 percent had lost one or more pets from natural causes and 37 percent had lost a pet to euthanasia. Although many pet owners experience great grief when a pet dies, about 30 percent reported grief that lasted six months or longer. Severe grief that resulted in major life disruption was not as common however; it was estimated to have been experienced by as high as 12 percent of those studied. Although the loss of a pet if often times life altering, it is not always recognized by friends, acquaintances, or co-workers. Because the loss of pet doesn’t always get treated as a significant or authentic occasion for grieving, people may not always know how to cope with their loss or a friend’s loss. (more…)

National Dog Day: Life is better with a dog.

Happy National Dog Day Dogs are a man’s best friend, so why not give them their own holiday?  Since 2004 August 26th has been celebrated annually as National Dog day. National Dog Day was founded by Colleen Paige as a way to draw attention to the need for pet rescue. It is also a day for you to honor that special dog or dogs that have brightened up your life with their companionship.

Celebrate today by adopting a dog from a rescue home or by taking time out of your day to appreciate your trusty companion. Dogs bring love and companionship to so many people all over the world and can be something that people sometimes take for granted. For all those times you have trusted on your canine best friend to keep you safe, comfort you, and love you here are just a few dog-tastic ways you can say thank you. (more…)
