the sweetest little friends

my posting today is a little different, but probably more poignant than my usual posts. it's about pets- those warm cuddly creatures that invade our lives and pull at our heartstrings.

and unfortunately they, like every living creature, eventually pass away. the photo above is of my brother's dogs- the little girl on the right passed this last weekend. for anyone that has ever loved and lost a pet, the grief can be enormous- it's really like losing a family member. this is something i have been through a couple of times and i can imagine that most people have also had to face at some point in their lives. but i'm so thankful that these little creatures were a part of my life, however brief.
so, i dedicate this post to all the lovely pets of all the world. because of the love they give, the comfort they bring, and the sweetest little friends they make.
rest in peace lottie. you will be missed.


  1. Aw, my heart goes out to your brother. Losing a pet is truly like losing a family member. They bring us joy, give us so many memories, and fulfill a part in us in a way that no other creature can.

  2. I am very sorry to hear about Lottie, who looked like a beautiful soul. You are right about the grief -- it's just like losing a family member. Dogs' souls are so pure and made of love that it is hard to live without them, but the memories are forever cherished.

  3. What a sweet little post, pets are so dear! We treasure ours. I'm sorry about your brother losing his dog, I hope it lived a happy life.

  4. thank you all for your kind words! pets are really the best- although their time with us is not forever, they are worth every moment of love and joy.
