Saying goodbye is always the hardest obstacle to overcome when faced with losing a much loved pet. Whether it is the immediate attention you receive when you walk through the front door after a long day at work or the excitement you experience from your beloved dog when you mention ‘walkies’, dealing without having one of your best friends by your side is one of the hardest times to go through. Remembering all the good times you shared with your companion in the past years is always the best way to deal with the grief if heaven took your angel suddenly or even you dearly miss your pet while you are away from home
Make a Collage
Creating a special mosaic tribute to your special friend can make your room a little more vibrant and use up some space if you have a few empty walls! To get some reasonable photos printed, you can order online or visit a retailer, for example Costco, and get a big batch of photos ready to be used. Once you have your photos, you can start decorating by overlapping each of you pictures to create a rectangular or square shape. If you are feeling adventurous, why not mould your photos into a heart shape?
Visiting them Regularly
Make trips to go and visit your cherished one’s rest place when you can. This is an ideal time to have the chance to relax in peace whilst telling them what you have been up to and dedicating time in your hectic timetable to spend with your precious pet. It may be a lovely idea to take some fresh flowers to rest on their stone or to plant seasonal flowers that will bloom throughout the year and keep your loved one’s spirit alive.
Go on the Same Walks You Went on
Relating to dog lovers here, it is always sentimental to tread the same path you and your best friend walked down in the past to relive those perfect memories. How about bring a friend along with you to share that precious moment?
When the dust has settled over a period of time and you feel that a new addition to the family would make the house feel more like a home again, it would be a good time to look for a new member of the family whether it would be the same breed your loved one was or maybe go for a new alternative. It is easy to feel extremely guilty within the process as it automatically feels a cruel way by starting a fresh. Sometimes the best way to mend a broken heart is to look to the future and start new journeys.
Keep a Little Piece Of Their Soul
Keeping those loved ones close to you is the best way to heal your broken heart. Some people choose to keep a clipping of their pet’s fur or hair as a little reminder of their friend which they will retain forever. Taking a picture of your pet and putting it into a locket is another idea that will put a smile on your face and take your friend with you on your journeys forever. Keeping your pet's collar and name tags are other sentimental items which you can keep to know they will be remembered forever. Maybe hang your pet’s collar up near their old environment and add their name tags to your car keys as a suggestion?
