Patrick, a True Companion

by Angela Shelton
(Asheboro, NC, United States)

I lost my beloved Yorkshire Terrier on December 10, 2008. He suffered from dementia.

He was born March 17, 1995.

As a pet owner, you always know that this day will come, but it doesn't make it any easier. The sense of loss and grief for the past few days, has been unbearable, but I know that time heals all wounds. Having friends who have been through the same experience recently, has been very helpful.

Patrick had a special blanket that I plan on having placed into a shadow box along with a picture of him with his favorite blanket. It will always be displayed on a wall. My family has lost a wonderful member of our family and we will always keep his memory alive.

I love you Patrick. You were my true companion and no one will ever take your place in my heart.

I had hoped my grief would have lessened by now but it is as painful as when I first lost Nell. Time heals, I guess. I hope you have family to help you through this terrible time in your life. To lose a family member (our pets are family) any time is terrible, but at this time of the year when there are plans of family gathering it is especially hurtful.
