Jake @ Rainbow Bridge

After 14 years of so much love, laughter, fun and adventure, our family member Jake was put to sleep on Friday. He took his last breath in my arms with his head against my heart and Mum and Dad right beside him. We are all so lost without him but I count my lucky stars that he chose us to be his family. I miss his kind eyes and soft ears so very much 😢💔🐾🕊

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.
