Unhappy I am so sorry...

I know how it is to lose an animal, my dog died a couple months ago,it's hard. I am sorry about your loss. When you have an animal for a really long time you start to get attached to it. Again very sorry for your loss, may kind and happy memories sooth your weeping eyes and grief.

I am sooooo sorry. I have lost 3 dogs over the past 5 years so I know exactly what you are going through. They were all 15 years old and it was their time but that doesn't make it any easier. It still feels like a kick in the gut.

Hugs to you!

Edited to add that my little guy up at left turns 15 on Thursday.

If you read the book of Revelations in the New Testament you will see that God comes on a horse. If there weren't any animals in heaven, then why would He ride a horse? There would not be only one horse. Animals have played such a big part in the Bible, to deny them some kind of after life would be cruel. I don't think God is cruel. They are made by Him too.

Claire, knowing you are dog lover makes me happy. You got to enjoy the love of a dog. Give my sympathy to your husband. Must be rough for him too. Thankful you have each other to comfort one another. Your memories will continue to keep her alive.

Mahalo to everyone. BTW, the blessing of pets is usually done at Episcopalian, Anglican (Church of England) and Catholic churches (all three are related) on the feast of St Francis. I don't remember what that date is, but I'm sure someone here knows. I've even seen kids bring in bowls of fish. For those who don't know much about saints, Saint Francis is the guy you see hanging around gardens with a bird in hand, often with a bowl of bird food. He's a pet-and-nature kind of guy, and when your pet needs help, he's the man for you.
