A UNIQUE CANINE SERVICE    THOR'S PASSING


PET LOSS REMEDY

When a pet dies I assume itís easier to remember them as they were the last year of their life, for itís the closest in memory. The moments of them prior to and as they are passing, may also be vividly imprinted in your mind. It was this way for me, until I initially grieved. I then sat outside in silence surrounded by my garden and sounds of nature. I wanted to think beyond the last years and that so heart wrenching moment when he passed.

So, I started with when we first got our boy, Thor. I took pen to paper (as I usually do when Iím in an emotional state) and began writing in chronological order as to how the years unfolded with him after bringing him home. My tears started to dry and a smile emerged, for I was remembering how he was most of his life Ė and how we felt during these times.

Thinking back, reminiscing and writing was my remedy for the pain. It worked, for it pushed the most recent painful moments and time further back, allowing me to see the bigger picture of our lives together. It gave me perspective.

Death is only the end of life and perhaps the sad part of it, but everything prior is there to celebrate. So I thought about all his life from the start to the finish.

I am satisfied, content Ė consoled.
