Criket @ Rainbow Bridge

Criket left us about 6pm. I held him in his favorite position, just like a baby. I cradled and rocked him like I always use to. He was so weak. He couldn’t even open his eyes. As the vet grabbed his one paw to start the process, with his free one he raised it and clutched my fingers as he passed on. He barely used his paws much the last couple weeks but his little meathook, as we called them, came up to grab me one last time. My beautiful baby left me with the gift of peace. And although it hurts and it’s hard to even lay in bed because that was his spot, I know he heard every word I said to him, not only these last couple weeks but his entire 14 years. He solidified the fact that I KNEW he could understand me and that means more than I could’ve ever hoped for.

I am a father, a husband and a dog owner. Like many of you, I love my pets and they are treated as family members. On saying that, if you ask my wife, the order is dogs, daughter and then me but hey, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I write about pet ownership with a slant towards pet loss. Whilst that may sound incredibly depressing to some, I want to focus more on why our pets are so important, the effect they have on our lives and the wonderful memories they create for us. I have been a qualified hypnotherapist since 1999 hence the many references to self-hypnosis as a method of dealing with the pain of pet loss. I know this works so I hope you will give it a try. Please contribute to the success of this website by commenting, liking and sharing. I know this is a community which will spread far and wide, bringing comfort and relief to the many thousands of readers who experience the heartache of pet loss.

This community thrives on comments from people just like you like. Please leave a few words for others to respond to.
