Memorial to Honor a Lost Pet ~
Losing a pet is heartbreaking. Of course you will never forget the love you gave and received from your pet. Writing a memorial can really help you when your pet dies. If your pet has passed away, whether it's your dog or cat or any animal brings intense grief. So many call their pet a "fur baby."
Unconditional Love for Your Pet
Your pet has unconditional love for you, and you feel that way in return. Your dog has been your trusted companion, your cat will curl up on your lap - or meow for attention. Just petting their fur makes you and them calm. A pet can be a great stress reliever when you feel down.
How to Write a Memorial for Your Dog or Cat
Many people write a memorial for a relative who has died, and I think it's totally appropriate to write a memorial for your pet who loved you like a child or best friend. Just seeing a picture of your pet with some fond memories written in calligraphy can give you a feeling of peace.
There's a poem describing where your your fur-baby pet has gone when they cross the "rainbow bridge".
The Rainbow Bridge
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
Losing A Pet Causes Depression
People are depressed for such a long time after losing someone they love, and it's the same with losing your fur-baby. Dogs are irreplaceable. It take time to grieve for your pet, and don't let anyone tell you, "just get over it!" There are sites that can help you grieve for your pet online.
In fact, having a pet is so important to humans that it can actually extend your life! That's right, research has shown that people who have pets have a tie that is stress relieving and helps them to live longer and happier!
Letter to Your Pet
This "mom" wanted a memorial showing her beloved dog. She said this made her feel better. She was able to see his picture every day and bring back the unconditional feeling of love. In fact, when she feels bad she remembers the good times with her fur baby. I can make a personalized memorial for your pet using a photo or many pictures of happy times you had with you dog.
A Gift for your Friend
Doing a pet memorial for a friend who has lost their beloved fur-baby can help them through the hard times of missing their pet. It would be a keepsake that they will really treasure.
My heart goes out to each person who has lost their best friend companion.
I had just met my son's puppy. (they live on the other coast-
He's a Toy Yorkie named "Leo." We made friends quickly. He's VERY active and wants to play all the time!
You can see Leo sitting next to me with his little paw on my leg.
My son and daughter-in-law treat him like their baby. They talk to him in a high voice like you would speak to a little baby. It's so cute.
He's my grand puppy- I'm waiting on my first grandchild!
