How To Deal With A Dogs Death
Everyone hates to think about the day they lose there beloved best friend, growing up with a large number of dogs as a child I have suffered the loss of a dog more than a dozen times and each of those times, it felt like I was losing a member of my family. Here are a couple ways how to deal with a dogs death:
- Support System : Surround yourself with people that love animals, people without pets don’t understand the death of a pet.
- Make A Scrapbook : All those adorable pictures of your pets, put them all together in a scrapbook so you can remember all the good times with your dog to help with the healing process, and put a smile on your face.
- Get Your Dog Cremated Or A Dog Memorial : Yes, you can get your doggie cremated, my mom actually did this for her Pomeranian, “Mariah Carey” ( yes her dog was named after the famous beautiful singer). Another way to remember your dog, purchase a memorial tribute. Memorial tributes can come in many forms such as a stone, a necklace, or a memorial picture frame with your dogs picture and collar.
- Rescue Another Doggie : Yes I know many people would say “no its way to soon”, but saving another dogs life will make you feel great, and give another pooch a chance at life and happiness.
Doing any of these things won’t take away the pain of losing your beloved companion, but might help ease the pain a little. Go look through poetry related to these situations to help you remember your beloved doggie, or to put in the memorial scrapbook. This is a poem I created for my mom’s dog.
Paw Print Marked
Your paw prints were stamped on my heart when I first saw you.
Now your paw prints are in the castle in the sky.
I miss you and the way you greeted me at the door.
I miss your kisses you gave me and the cuddles we shared.
Your paw prints will always be marked on my heart and my soul.
