If you have ever had a pet, you know what it feels like to be loved unconditionally. They are loyal, loving, and completely forgiving. They bring you joy in ways that no human can. They have a place in your heart that no one can fill. So when they pass away, there is just a hole. A hole that you can never fill with anything, no matter how hard you try.
Have Your Voice Heard: Become an Odyssey Creator
All you are left with are the memories, the many memories of them making you laugh and comforting you. Here are a few things that I remember the most of my precious baby:
Greeting me at the door after a long day.
Waking me up in the morning, even if I'm not ready to wake up.
Always following me into the bathroom.
Begging to go outside, then wanting right back in.
Knowing when I am upset and need extra love.
But refusing to accept my kisses.
How they react when I scratch that “sweet spot” or rub their bellies.
How excited they get going on a car ride, even though they have done it a thousand times.
Playing with their food, it’s necessary really.
Every time I open the fridge, I am obviously getting something for them.
The neighbor’s dogs are the enemies, they have to chase them, for hours.
Sometimes it’s necessary for them to bark for no reason.
At the end of the day, they make me feel so safe and loved.
Many people say that having a pet isn't worth the pain when you lose them. I say that it's all worth it. The memories you make with them, how much they make you laugh, how loved they make you feel, in the end it's worth every tear you cry. Yes, losing a pet sucks. Yes it feels like a part of you is missing. But you got to love that animal their whole life. You got to cherish them, you made memories with them, they are forever a part of you now. Hold on to that. Never forget that.
