A Prayer of Thankfulness for Animals

Today is the anniversary of my springer Chester’s death, on November 20, 1997. He passed away gently in his sleep, after ten wonderful years together. That Thanksgiving was very sad. After all this time I still think of him often, but now I smile at the memories. During this week of Thanksgiving, I am especially grateful for the dogs I have known and loved. The wonderful book Animal Blessings: Prayers and Poems Celebrating Our Pets by June Cotner, contains the following meditation on thankfulness:

The Love They Give Us

by Kent C. Greenough

Not only is there always another good animal in need of a good home, but we must remember to be thankful for the time and love our animals give us while they are here. Take time to enjoy them and learn from them. As painful as it is to lose them, they teach us to love unselfishly, they teach us to live each day to the fullest, they teach us how to grow old gracefully, and they teach us how to die with dignity. We do them a disrespect to focus only on the sorrow of their death when they have given us so much joy through their life. If we wish to honor them, take what they have given us, all that love, and give it back to another animal in need of help.

As we begin this holiday season, remember and honor the animals that bless our lives, and especially those who need a home.

    Hello, we are stopping over from PBU. Pet Loss is a topic that is very close to us this year. We lost our 12 year old bloodhound to liver disease in June. I have a great friend that I am able to share my pet loss with. We seem to go through it about the same time and relate so well. That is very important to have. If I was to win the books, the Loss of a Feline Companion would be given to her since she just recently lost her beloved cat. She has shared her books with the me so returning the favor only seems right. Thanks, HoundDogMom (Sherri)

    Thanks for stopping by, Sherri. I’m sorry for your loss. I know having a friend who understands what you are going through is a big help. So often people don’t know what to say, so they act as if nothing happened, and meanwhile you are walking around feeling you lost a child, or a best friend, or both. It leaves a big hole in your heart, but it does heal with time, and the happy memories come back. Right now I am imagining a bloodhound running around heaven, sniffing out treats in every pocket!
