Ghostly Pets? Or Your Minds Way of Coping with The Sad Loss of Your Dog

Losing your pet can be hard. You can realy suffer when your much loved pet dies. After all, our dogs are part of our families!

Do our minds play tricks on us to comfort us? or do they realy appear!

The story of Hobbes the golden retriever who died of cancer, is comforting.

It also makes one think too.

Heartbroken after Hobbes death , his owners put photos of him on their fridge.

One week after their beloved dogs death, Moe their son returned from Uni.

He visited with a friend who upon seeing all the pictures of Hobbes

covering the fridge, asked about the display.

Moe told his friend how only one week earlier, their dog had passed away.

“Thats impossible” his friend replied shocked at his statement.

“I just saw your dog and stroked him ” added the friend.

From people claiming to still feel the presence of their pets after they pass.

To sightings of dogs in fields, that just seem to “disappear”

It would be comforting to know that animal afterlife exsists.

After all they do have souls , just like us.

A heartwarming book to read with more stories, like the one of Hobbes.

Animals and the afterlife by Kim Sheridan,priced £10.99.

So knowing you are not alone in feeling such grief after

The death of your beloved dog, your best and most loyal friend.

This can be devastating. After all they were a part of your family.

Allways there never let you down, then they are gone.

How do you cope ? Especially when others don`t seem to understand.

They may say “he was just a dog” or “ahh you can get another”

They are never just a dog, and there are people you can talk too.

One such helpline is the Pet Bereavement Support Service.

They are a phone and email Support Support Service.

Offering a much needed sympathetic ear and support.

This service is there 12 hours a day, 365 days a year.

They also offer help and comfort to owners

faced with the awfull decision of euthanasia.

Some pet insurance companys also offer pet bereavment services

such as Direct line Pet Insurance.

    That’s a very good article; really pulls at the heartstrings. As a dog lover (and former dog owner) I can really relate.
