Our animals shepherd us through certain areas of our lives.
When we are ready to turn the corner and make it on our own…
they let us go.
Those we have lost
Those of us who have been owned and loved by animals know the hardest part of the relationship is letting go. Whether the pet leaves for the Bridge on its own or is helped by us, the loss, pain and grief can be tearing and long lasting.
Making the choice to help seniors means that, yes, these passings are more frequent than if we aided younger dogs, but we know there is no love like that of a senior and, because of that, the time we have with them is all the more precious.
In setting up this page I had to decide if I only wanted to show the senior fosters who have run off to the Bridge or if I wanted to also include the dogs my husband and I have had through our lives. I decided it was more fitting to remember each of them. After all, each had blessed and enriched our lives for the time we had with them, and our happy memories are fuller because of their time with us.
