Living in the moment

Less than one week after discovering her cancer, cherished Lucky passed away late last night.

Anyone who has truly loved then lost their family pet understands the strong feelings experienced during grief. Yet life simply goes on for everyone else around you and colleagues, friends and family may or may not understand. It can be a difficult time and even more difficult when it’s sudden or when the dog is young and healthy like Lucky was.

When the time comes for you to grieve the loss of your pet, take comfort in Dog Whisperer Cesar Milan’s words:

“One thing we can learn from dogs is how to appreciate and enjoy life in its smallest detail, every single day. When your dog does finally pass, he has probably lived a fuller life than you have. Your dog has savoured every moment on this earth. He is leaving it with no unfinished business, no regrets.”

Dogs teach us so much about being – about being real, about living.

In memory of Lucky 2005-2009. We miss her.
