How to deal with the grief of a dog dieing.

Dear Folks,

I am often approached by people whose beloved pet has died.  They are crest fallen and grief stricken.  They are not sure they want to get another pet and risk the hurt of the death of another cherished pet. They sometimes feel a sense of guilt and betrayal if thinking about getting a new puppy.

My Darling Ron, says dogs have a shorter life span than humans so they can pass on  after they have taught us how to love them and leave us to love another.

If you have lost your beloved pet, perhaps the following will help


Dogs’ Last Will and Testament.

Humans when they die, leave their homes and things they cherish to loved ones in a will.

If with my paws I could do the same this is what I would ask…

To a new and tiny puppy I‘d give my happy home; my bowl and cozy bed, soft pillow and all my toys.

The lap that I loved so much, the hand that stroked my fur and the sweet voice that spoke my name.

I’d will to the little puppy the place I had in my human’s loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.

So, when I die, please do not say, ” I will never have a dog again, for the loss and pain is more than I can stand.”

Instead, go find a little puppy whose life will give you so much joy and give my place to it.

This is the only thing I can give…

Your love, I left behind.

Signed;  Your Dog
