We lost our wonderful Bleu on Saturday, June 12th. He was only three years old. I will not say that losing a pet is like losing a child. We've been there with a pregnancy loss and it's nothing like that hell. Nor will I insult those who've grieved the loss of a birthed baby, child, teenager, an adult child. As a trauma nurse, I've seen their raw wounds too many times to compare it to the loss of even a beloved pet. I guess it's more like losing an intimate piece of my soul. The Beloved is a wreck. It hurts him more deeply. He's always had a deep connection with those who are blessed enough to gain his love, his trust. Pets included. In my grand plan I'd planned on posting a few of Bleu's puppy pictures. But I can't find the photo cards they're on. Dang.
