After working in the veterinary field for several years, you start to notice a pattern…
Many owners have to say goodbye to their furry best friends (and furry kids) during this time of year. Although this observation is very unscientific, it certainly seems to be a pattern.
We bring pets into our lives knowing we won’t spend the rest of our days with them. So how great must their love be that we do this to ourselves over and over?
The answer ….pretty freakin great.
Our pets are our therapists, our security, and at times, our only companions, but most importantly, they are there to love us each and every day, which is why saying goodbye is so terribly difficult.
Recently, many of my friends have had to say goodbye to their beloved companions. The world recently lost a wonderful blind beagle named Casey, a very scruffy and mischievous Lewis, and the wonderful and beautiful Miss Fanny Rose.
Recently, I wrote about Rufus in my story about puppy mills. Well, Miss Fanny Rose was Rufus’ sister, whom he loved so very much. I had the pleasure of seeing Rufus and Fanny together for years, and I know he misses her very much. One of my favorite memories of Fanny is the video of her couch dance, and with permission from her mom, I will share it with you today….
Although the video is dark, I think you can see just how bright Fanny’s personality was. Be sure to give your furry friends a kiss on the nose tonight for all of those who no longer can.
My thoughts and prayers are with Casey, Lewis, and Fanny’s families.
Feel free to share your favorite memories below..
