Pet Memorials

image2-4Your pet is part of your family and one of the saddest facts of life is that we outlive our pets. A memorial ceremony for your pet is a way of acknowledging the love you shared, and helps you to grieve and say goodbye.

My darling daughter and her family lost their puppy, Shadow. We put together a memory jar, filled with our words and thoughts. The following ceremony was created for them:

Dear little Shadow, we are all here to say we loved you and we will miss you. You were only with us for such a short time but we loved your crazy personality, your beautiful eyes and your very soft fur. You made Cosby smile and sometimes bark because sometimes you were a bit of a pest but he loved you too! Our cuddles in front of the fire were worth waiting for!

We have put lots of things in this jar and many of our words of love to you – we know you will be the brightest star in the sky and know that we have been better for knowing you.

We all fought over who was going to feed you. You were so popular and loved.
The kids at our school knew and loved you and everyone else that you met. You were a little magnet to all around you.

So our darling Shadow we know you were with us for such a short time for a reason and we know you would be having fun with all the beautiful dogs that have gone before you, Erin, Cassie, Bogart, Hugo and Abbey. Abbey would be the noisy one and bossing everyone around but we know you will win her over just like you have with everyone.
Every day there is sunshine and we create a shadow, we know you will be with us and looking out for us as our little guardian angel.

Those we love don’t go away around you.
