Pets

I have a friend whose
pet lab has lung cancer.
A dog she has had for 15 years.
A dog that gave her comfort, licked her
tears and hovered over her when she
struggled with infertility and
miscarriage.

Somehow, pets know.

I'm so sad for her dog and
for her.
Grief is once again on the
horizen. A grief that she
knows is coming. There
is no hope.

At least with
infertility, there is always a
tiny bit of hope. Even if it
is the size of a grain of sand.

Life is full of sadness.

Tears well as I think of her.

I, too, have dogs that are labs.
Dogs who have licked my tears
and comforted me many times.
I kiss each one and tell them
that I love them.
One of the best things
God made.

It is so hard when a beloved pet gets ill. There is nothing more cherished than the connection of a pet with its owner. I love(d) all my animals. They've enriched my life in so many ways.

The death of a pet breaks my heart. Have you ever read "the rainbow bridge"? Don't google it unless you want a good cry.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and giving me your support. I am hoping and praying it is just implantation bleeding.

Sorry for your friend. You are correct. Pets know sadness. I read your blog a lot & it really hits home.
