The sadness of letting go has so little to do with these earthly issues – like weight and form, or human and pet. When a treasured pet dies, you may find yourself going through a kind of mental gymnastics – most of which is just a feeble attempt at distracting you from what you’re desperately trying to avoid: the heavy and unbearable sadness of letting go of something so sweet, so precious, and so connected to you. This is my attempt to remind you of the truth, so that you can get back to doing what you are meant to do when you lose a pet – which is to purely experience the release of this being you treasure. In the highly charged situation of a sick pet who doesn’t have a voice, guilt is always available to fill the silent spaces. You find your pet, you love your pet, and you do the best you can. When you’re contemplating putting your pet to sleep, and you ask people how you’ll know whether or not to do it, and when it’s time, they will all tell you one thing, “Oh. You’ll know. You’ll just know.” No matter if your dog was only three when she got hit by a car, or if your cat lives to be 29, you’ll want more time. One day her dad announced that he refused to allow any more pets in their home because he couldn’t stand to go through any more broken hearts. He managed to hold fast to his rule, and my mom never had another pet in her life. While it may take some time to allow another pet into your life, the idea that you can protect your heart from pain by sealing it off from love is ludicrous. Don’t waste your energy being mad. Whether it’s the joy of a pet, or having your own business, or getting fired, or losing a parent – if someone hasn’t experienced it, then they just don’t understand. Don’t berate yourself if you burst into tears the very next hour, and beg your pet not to leave, and bargain with God to make sure you never hurt again in your life.
Pet Loss: Saying Goodbye To Your Pet
As hard as it is, saying goodbye can actually help you cope with and heal after your loss, and it can make your pet’s transition easier and more peaceful. Saying goodbye is just as important before as after the loss of your pet. If your beloved companion is dying, then saying goodbye is also giving your pet permission to die. When it is clearly your pet’s time to go, saying goodbye is a gift you give as you allow your pet to continue on their soul’s journey. It is also an opportunity for you to express your deep love and gratitude for all the fond moments you had together and for everything your pet means to you. Saying goodbye when your pet is dying can help you with acceptance and bring at least some peace of mind. Many times we are not so fortunate that we can be there in person and say goodbye to our pet when they die. If your pet dies suddenly or you are not with them when they die, you will have to say your goodbyes after the death of your pet. Creating a little ceremony where you say your goodbyes and express what you need to say to your pet, is an important step in your healing process. If you avoid saying goodbye to your companion, you may make it more difficult for yourself to accept your pet’s death, and could suffer long-lasting pain and depression. You will miss your pet’s physical presence, but as you move consciously through your grieving process in your own pace and in your own way, you can reconnect with your beloved pet through the love you shared. Look inside your heart; underneath the pain you will find that the love and the connection you had with your pet is still alive.
