Eight years ago today we said goodbye to Bentley. When he left he took an enormous piece of my heart with him. He was my first PWD and the reason I live with eight of them today. Samba is even named for him.
Two years earlier on December 3rd we lost Pylon and last year on December 23 Monty died. Only four months earlier we said goodbye to Lucy.
I've had pets all my life, dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and assorted other species. We all know that along with the joy of sharing our lives with an animal, the day will come when we lose them. Their lives are much too short and we somehow have to deal with it.
Many of us have had to say goodbye to a beloved pet this year, but almost all of us have faced it at one time or another.
Chan and I would like to honor the pets that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge, the recent ones and the ones who went before and took part of us with them. Starting December 27 and continuing thru December 30 we will have Rainbow Week on the Dogs-N-More blog.
We invite everyone to join us. We will post pictures, names and dates and whatever you would like to say about your pet. All types of pets are welcome. If there was an animal that meant a lot to you who belonged to a relative or friend, please include them. This is to honor the pets who were so important in our lives for whatever reasons.
You can e-mail your pictures and information to either Chan or me and we will post them in no particular order along with some poetry on those days December 27 - December 30. What better time than the last week of the year to remember those little lives that brought so much happiness into our lives?
