Losing a pet is really hard, since most pets are like members of your family. I have not had any pets myself, but I have gotten to know many pets over the years. My boyfriend has had dogs in the family all his life and I have gotten to know the dog he has now and have developed a bond with him, even though he is not my dog.
It is amazing the way that dogs take a liking to you and accept you into their family pretty quickly. My boyfriend’s dog has accepted me into the family and he cares for me and looks after me and it just melts my heart to see that. One time, I fell in my boyfriend’s parents’ driveway and scraped my hand and the dog panicked and you could tell he was worried about me. He even followed me inside and watched as my boyfriend’s mom gave me some first aid.
Seeing how much love my boyfriend’s dog has for me definitely makes me want to get a dog of my own someday. I can understand how hard it must be if a dog does pass away and you are left with a hole in your life. Finding some garden memorial gifts to help others cope with a pet loss is the least I can do to help them to remember the enduring love that their pets showed them.
