Pets bring so much joy to our lives, but one of the most challenging moments is losing a precious fur family member. We recently heard that one of our members lost their precious pup. Losing a pet is incredibly heartbreaking, but we of course want to honor the joy and memories that our pets bring into our lives. Our pets become our shadows and when that shadow is no longer following our every step, it is hard to get past the pain. To remember our pets, we can always celebrate all of the wonderful memories and love they bring us.
Marcel – the beautiful Poodle lived 14 wonderful years before recently crossing over the rainbow bridge. As you can see from his photos, Marcel was absolutely handsome! Marcel’s family rescued him when he was just two and a half years old. They described him as, “very sweet and easy-going.” Our hearts go out to Marcel’s family during this difficult time.
When Pet Jet’s members come to us looking for help moving their pets, we hear how important their pets are to them. They describe their personalities, memories they have made with them, and how important it is to keep their pets safe while traveling. Honey and I (Megan) as pet lovers ourselves, always feel heartbroken when we receive news that our member’s experience the loss of their pets. It is hard to have the right words for times of deep sadness, but here are the best words we can pass on:
They Will Not Go Quietly
“They will not go quietly,
the pets who’ve shared our lives.
In subtle ways they let us know
their spirit still survives.
Old habits still can make us think
we hear them at the door
Or step back when we drop
a tasty morsel on the floor.
Our feet still go around the place
the food dish used to be,
And some times, coming home at night,
we miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new friends
and a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts
belongs to them…
and always will.”
