There are many ways to say goodbye and honor a pet you have lost. When my beagle Sookie, died I was so saddened by her loss I was unable to make an urn for her, it was just too hard to sit and look and pictures and think of how she was gone.
After hanging onto her ashes for nearly a year I decided to plant a tree in her memory since she loved to be outside. Looking at her tree everyday as it watches over my house allows me to think of her and smile. Today it blossomed for the first time! It filled me with such happiness to see all the beautiful flowers that were all a little part of her! I plan this summer to make a memorial stone to go under the tree for her. Eventually when I am ready I will make her a small urn as well, but in the meantime I can enjoy springtime flowers and think of her. What things have you done that have helped you say goodbye to a pet you have lost?
