“William was....”

published 03/07/2004

ProA life was lived, happily and giving happiness

ConsIt's ended, as lives do

Ciao, despite everything we say about it, does sometimes get its categorisation right. At least, that’s the thought that struck me when I found this topic listed under “Member Advice on Relationships and Family” rather than under “Member Advice on Pets”. A pet is a family member and the effect of...

“Paw prints in the snow”

published 10/12/2003

ProThe joy your pet brought just from having had them

ConsThe end of a precious life

A year ago I sat and wrote about the death of my cat Shadow. It wasn't by any means a conventional opinion, or a well-planned piece of writing; it was an expression of emotion straight from the heart because that's all I could manage at that time. A year on, now, I smile when I think of her...

ProThe love the faithfulness.The good times.

ConsThe pain the wretched suffering ...the loss.

Today we had to do one of the hardest things we have as a family have ever done. We decided to let our pet go. We only knew on the same day he was put to sleep. Forgive me for plonking this here as this isn't strictly in the right catagory but not knowing where else to put it -my view is one that...

Pet Bereavement All seasoned pet owners are only too familiar with the strong, emotional responses suffered, upon the loss of their pet, be it mouse, dog, cat or donkey. This review is mainly about those responses and how we deal with them; and may well be more useful to none-pet owners, in that...

13 July 2004 I started to write this at 5.30 am this morning, I feel sick, miserable beyond belief in fact I am finding it very difficult to put how I feel into words. The thing is you see we are going to lose a treasured member of our family today and it is our own choice that we are letting...

It’s a year ago this weekend that our dog, Lady Lucy Magee died. It was hard for us to cope with, but harder still for the dog that Luce left behind. This is what she had to say at the time. ******* Hi! My name’s Rosie O’Hooligan Magee and I’m a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog. I was so pleased when I...

“My Chum Marmalade”

published 18/11/2002

ProWhat on earth is an advantage of a pet death

ConsYour beloved pet dies

The loss of a much-loved family pet can be a very sad event in any home. My cat Marmalade has died at the grand old age of 17. For some months now he had been in very frail health, although our cat-loving vet said after Marmalade had endured various tests that there was nothing wrong with him...

ConsLots

Horses and ponies are frequently remarkably long-lived. Some ponies are still leading useful lives well into their thirties. The diminutive Shetland pony is naturally hardy and able to thrive in the harshest environment. It is robust and sound and will live to be well over 40 years of age. On the...

“GOODNIGHT SOOTY”

published 20/05/2003

ProNone

ConsPainful to write

People say that losing a pet is like losing a close member of your family. I never knew how true this was until today. Sooty was my first dog and we got him from a Dog Rescue centre when he was only a young pup. He had been found in a shoe box on a church step, barely alive. Luckily a passer-by...

ConsSometimes I cry too

I started thinking about someone I haven't thought of in quite some time. Forgive me if I sniffle, it's ok, I brought some tissues. I knew this would be the case you see. Ben was my Mam's dog, who lived to the ripe old age of sixteen. He was a Heinz 57 type of mix, with his little legs and his...

“The Story of Emma”

published 27/04/2003

ProPets are wonderful companions

ConsPets don't last forever

Emma was my first 'real' cat - I had done cat sitting prior to this, but Emma was the first. I had been raised with dogs and other pets, but never a cat. But, as I was a student and didn't have time for 'doggy duties', I thought a cat would be more self-reliant. Neighbours had several cats, and a...

Conslosing your best friend

I have owned many cats over the years, and lost many cats too, but the death of Candy will stay with me forever, and has saddened me far more than my other losses. I love cats, sometimes I think I love them more than humans, they always seem to be there for you and never answer you back. You can...

While scuba-diving off of Virgin Gorda, (one of the British Virgin Islands) a couple of years ago, I happened upon a colony of beautiful and exotic looking "Conch" shells, one of which I wanted to take home with me. When I picked it up, I thought its previous owner had abandoned it for larger...

Conssuch heartache

I was helping my mum shopping when I noticed an advert in the local post office window. 'Free, eight week old puppies to a good home'. I bullied my mum all day 'can I get a puppy mum?' Her answer 'ask your dad'. Dad just grunted, so I took that to be a yes. My brother and myself dashed down the...
