My companion growing up was a beautiful Golden Retriever Collie mix named Red. I was devastated when he passed away when I was in high school. He was my friend, my protector and my companion.
Pet people know how animals can truly become part of the family and the loss of a pet can be as devastating as losing a friend.
The last few months have been rough on our family as we have lost many of our fury companions. Last week we lost our lovable black and white cat Lucky. Lucky was always under foot and ready to eat anytime the kitchen door opened. But we loved him and miss him dearly.
For the pet lovers out there, we know that you understand that the loss of a pet can cause a void in your life. They provide unconditional love and companionship. They are by are side when we are sick and listen when no one else will.
For the non pet lover, we ask you to remember that your friends that love the fury creatures of the world may be experiencing a loss without their pet. Kind words and your thoughtfulness at a time of a loss will be greatly appreciated.
We are grateful for the time we were able to spend with our fury friends and will miss them dearly.
In Loving Memory
