Heartbroken Dog Who Refused to Eat for 10 Days After Losing Her Guardian Says One Last Goodbye.

Published

on

“This photograph captures a special moment between a man, his wife and their best friend. She had recently lost her dear husband to a sudden heart attack and wanted to see him one last time to say goodbye. When Andy passed away at home their dog of 13 years, Sadie, would not leave his side. After his death, she showed signs of depression, would not eat and waited for him to come home everyday. His wife expressed the need for Sadie to be there. I agreed and we planned to have her attend.

The day of the service Sadie’s mood like everybody else’s was suitably subdued. Like she could sense at least the energy of the people around her. At the end of the service Julia brought Sadie into the chapel so they could both pay their respect. Sadie approached slowly but without hesitation or fear. The guests were all affected by seeing Sadie; knowing what she meant to Andy. Not a dry eye in the house.

Sadie did not have to be coaxed or forced to jump her front paws up to the casket. I knew as it was unfolding it was a special moment. A moment that Julia may not have been able to take in fully. Taking meaningful pictures and videos at funerals has been a practice for decades. This was no different. For Julia to see this photo after would bring her comfort and would be one of the tools she needed for the grieving process. Grief can dull the senses and impede the ability to remember details like this. Photos help and allow others not present to share in what happened.

Sadie calmly stepped down and walked out. After 10 days of not eating and 10lbs of weight loss, Sadie walked into her home again after the service and ate her first meal. The outpouring of support and grief has been much greater for Sadie’s loss than I have ever come close to seeing for an actual widow in nearly 25 years of funeral service. Animals feel and sense emotion. They suffer separation and loss not unlike humans.

This picture screams ‘man’s best friend.’ more than a thousand photos of the family dog chasing a ball or swimming in the local lake.

Perhaps more than any photo or experience with the family dog this one speaks volumes about the deep connections we have with our pets. Everyone in the room saw a level of expression from a canine that was as human as our own. Maybe more for at this funeral everybody present knew there were, with the exception of Julia, only a few guests more deserving of the right to pay their respect that day than Sadie.”

Mom hears loud crash only to walk into son’s bedroom & find shocking sight as son sleeps

Mom hears loud crash only to walk into son’s bedroom & find shocking sight as son sleeps

We all know that children are innocent young souls and it is because of this that we need to take good care of them, protect them and teach them to be better people.

One night a couple checked on their son only to find him sleeping with his pet fish. The startling sight made the couple realize how innocent their son was. It was at this point that they realized there were some important life lessons they had to teach their son.

Corey Hamlin and his wife Tori had bought their young son, Everett, a gold fish and a fish tank with beautiful lights. Everett loved his pet gold fish and spent most of his time staring at the fish tank and made sure it was clean and that it had all the décor that would make Nemo happy.

One night, while the family was preparing to go to bed, Everett grew tired of just watching his pet fish so he approached the tank and opened the lid. He had a tough time opening the lid, so his parents heard a loud crash.

When his mother asked if something had happened, Everett said that it was nothing. Little did his mother know that he had taken out Nemo from his fish tank and carried him to his bed. Everett thought that Nemo must have been so lonely in his fish tank so he wanted to give his pet some hug.

About 20 minutes later the couple checked on their son. It was then that they realized that the fish tank lid was missing! And even to make it worse was the fact that the fish was not inside the tank. Confused Tori asked her husband to help check on the fish with her, which is when he realized his son was holding the fish gently in his hand.

Shocked by what they had seen, the couple woke up their son to explain to him that Nemo was dead because fish needed to stay in water. Everett said that he meant to harm and just wanted to pet his fish. He had known Nemo since he was a baby and he was so upset over losing him.

Everett was innocent, and this was one of those moments when a child learns what it means to lose something or someone so dear to them. They got Everett another fish, and the boy promised he wouldn’t touch it.

He finally realized it was much better to appreciate his fish inside the tank than to touch them and put them at risk.

A marathon runner melted hearts across the world for the sweetest reason. Khemjira Klongsanun from Bangkok, Thailand is an ardent runner and regularly runs marathons in her home.

All the other runners were focused on winning and hence were trying to avoid the little dog but not Khemjira. She understood that a little kindness and compassion was worth much more than just winning a marathon and trying to beat her personal best.

Sacrificing some of her precious time off the marathon, Khemjira slowly approached the little dog stray puppy and scooped it up.

Khemjira then ran the remaining 19-miles of the marathon, all the while holding the little puppy in her arms.

There was an option, perhaps, that Khemjira could have handed the puppy off to a willing spectator or race official, but she did not. She chose to go all the way with her newly found fur friend.

Khemjira decided to take the sweet puppy home with her and add it to her own family. She named the puppy Nong Chom.
