The title quote is from George Elliot, describing pets. I could not agree more.
I found out this week that three people I know just lost their beloved pets. Two of them are DH’s family and one is a woman I have never met in person, but “speak” to regularly due to the magic of the internet.
The loss of a pet is just as serious, if not more serious than the loss of a friend or family member. In many cases more serious, as the pet is often considered both a friend and a family member and is loved and cherished by its owner.
My heart goes out to you. May you all take comfort in your memories of your pets. Let them fill your mind, warm your heart and lead you through these sad times.
Rest in peace Ninja and George. You are loved and will not be forgotten
