Unique Pet Loss Gifts to Comfort Your Pet Lover Friends
Losing a pet is one of the straitest things I can imagine. It is losing a family member, maybe even more.
Research shows that losing a pet is more broken-hearted for people than losing a person - however, in my opinion, people have already known this truth, and no need for research to tell.
The greatest gift we can give them as their parents is to know it is time to say bye and not let them suffer in their final days. We live with them, knowing that we will outlive them in general.
They leave a legacy of memories and emotions that become an indelible part of our lives. This is the positive side - our pets are with us but in a personal and unique way.
While it is never easy to start the conversation about grieving and loss and carrying on, I’m going to take the brave step here to talk about how we can remember and memorialize our pets and also how we can comfort our human friends who are going through the loss of a furry companion.
Moving on after experiencing grief and loss is not easy for those who have just lost them, but I want to appeal to people to be brave and share how we should honor and respect our pets and how we can comfort our human friends who are experiencing the loss of their fur babies.
Some people may decorate their houses with pictures of their recently departed pets, while others may no longer want to see pictures of their dogs. That's the nature of grief - which is highly personal and there is no right or wrong to it. A loss is a loss, and what you feel is what you feel.
I mention this because you should be sensitive to how your friend is feeling before you send them paw prints or a painting with their pet’s face screened on it as a pet memorial and keepsake. You don’t want to send your friend into yet another cascade of tears.
What I am trying to say is that if you want to comfort your friend by giving them paw prints or face painting as pet souvenirs and keepsakes, then you should be sensitive to their feelings. I think nobody wants their friends to cry again.
What is worth noting is that plenty of fantastic options for memorializing pets that both show your support for their grief and help your friend, rather than simple condolence or sympathy card.
I know pet memorials or condolences are not as familiar to us, so when the time comes, we are usually desperate to do the right thing and comfort our grieving friend.
Your best bet is to sit with your friend in the days after pets are lost. Listen to what they want to say, but if you will accompany them in silence, in grief.
In due course, these unique and thoughtful commemorative choices Xiuyuan Jewelry provided can also help.
