My Pet Memorials make a unique and loving gift for someone who is grieving. I know we will be with our pets again in Heaven. The Bible says that there will be no more sorrow in Heaven. I believe the Bible so I know that all my pets will be there because I would be full of sorrow and Heaven just wouldn't be Heaven for me without my "Best Animal Friends" there.

In Memory of Your Best Friends

Honoring Your Best Friends

I’ve been helping people cope with the loss of their beloved animal friends by creating personalized custom pet memorial tribute pictures to remember and honor their best friends. Every picture is different and special for each person because I use your picture of your pet and your verse or poem. You can write a verse or poem yourself, you can use one of mine (I have many of them available for you to choose from here), or you can find one in a book or on the Internet. Be prepared to cry if you search and read the many different verses and poems that people have written.

I am an animal lover myself. My wife and I have 4 dogs, 2 cats, 1 bird and 4 goats. They are our children. Unfortunately, most of us have gone through the pain of losing a pet. Nothing can totally take the pain away but my pictures have helped many people deal with their loss in a positive, healing manner. Let me create a beautiful pet memorial picture for your beloved friend. Each pet memorial is a unique work of art that you will love and cherish forever. I personally guarantee it or your money back.

“Dear Heavenly Images,

Thank you so much for the joy that my grandmom got when she got the photo of my dad (her son). She cried (happy tears). The photo seemed to have brought her out of her shell.

Dealing with the Loss of a Pet

Sadly, everyone who cares for a pet will one day face the illness, old age or passing of their beloved animal friend. It is as natural and necessary to grieve for the loss of a pet as it is for any loved one who dies. And it is important to have compassion and support in one's time of grief.

Helping Your Child with the Loss of a Pet

Facing the death of a family pet can be one of the most traumatic events in a child's young life. Understand that your child may feel a variety of emotions-from emptiness and sadness to guilt and anger at friends whose pets are still alive. Your children may worry that the animal's death is their fault, and may wonder what happens to animals after they die. Some kids may even worry that other children and classmates will ridicule them for loving their pet so much.

Here are a few activities that may help your child deal with his or her grief:

·         It may help some children to draw a picture of their pet, or write a letter to their pet.

·         Sometimes it can help to have a memorial service, including the entire family and friends who knew your pet. If you have a backyard, you can plant a tree or flowers in your pet's honor. Your children may want to help you plan this.

·         It may make some children better to keep something that their pet really loved-such as a collar, tag or favorite toy.

·         You and your child can gather up photographs of your pet to make into a photo album. This can be arranged chronologically, starting with pictures of when the animal was a baby. Your child can also include information about your pet's favorite toys, treats and things to do.

·         Sitting down with the family and sharing memories of your pet can make your children sad--but it can make them laugh, too, and will help your child understand that everyone is feeling the loss as well.

·         Although your child may not feel like it, it can help to engage in his or her regular activities-such as going to practice or rehearsal after school, playing outside or going for a bike ride.

A Dog's Purpose
(from a 6-year-old).
 

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners,

Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.  

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.  

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker 's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.  

The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without

any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.  

Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ''I know why.''   Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.   He said,''People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?'' The Six-year-old continued,

''Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.''  
 


Here are a few things we can learn from dogs...

Live simply.

 

Love generously.

 

Care deeply.

 

Speak kindly.

 

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

 

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

 

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

 

Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.

 

Take naps.

 

Stretch before rising.

 

Run, romp, and play daily.

 

Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

 

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

 

On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.

 

On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.

 

When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

 

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

 

Be loyal.

 

Never pretend to be something you're not.

 

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

 

When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

 

There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...


Have a great life.
