Comforting Words

For those who have suffered the loss of a beloved pet or those who wish to pass on their condolences to others - our hope is that these thoughtful words may comfort or inspire you. Please accept our deepest condolences on your pet loss.

"The dog of your boyhood teaches you a great deal about friendship, and love, and death: Old Skip was my brother. They had buried him under our elm tree, they said - yet this wasn't totally true. For he really lay buried in my heart." ~ Willie Morris, My Dog Skip

"If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went." ~ Will Rogers

"If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons." ~James Thurber

And if I go, while you are still here...

Know that I still live on,

Vibrating to a different measure,

Behind a thin veil that you cannot see through.

You will not see me, so you must have faith.

I will wait there for the time when we can soar together again, both aware of each other.

Until then, live your life to the fullest.

And when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart,

...I will be there.

"For those who love dogs, it would be the worst form of a lie to call any place where dogs were banned "Paradise." Certainly no loving God would separate people from their canine friends for eternity." ~Stanley Coren

"A good dog never dies. He always stays. He walks besides you on crisp autumn days when frost is on the fields and winter's drawing near. His head is within our hand in his old way." ~Mary Carolyn Davies

"Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives." ~John Galsworthy
