This is my pet loss story, share your story with other like-minded pet-loving hoo-mans!
It's been 4 years since the launch of our popular Pet Loss Locket Necklace and since then, I have been privileged to hear from our many pet-loving customers who kindly shared stories of their beloved companions and the positive impact their pet had made on their lives and those around them.
I initially created this locket necklace to store the lovely caramel-coloured fur of my dear Maltese x Silky Terrier Rocky, who I lost after 14 amazing years in my life. Wearing this locket was a way for me to feel his presence and spirit close-by during the initial grieving stage which I found extremely difficult as I had just lost my best friend. Rocky was literally my 'rock' during some of the hardest times in my life. He gave me a purpose to get up in the morning and was a comfort during lonely times. He never judged, lied or got angry with me. I did most of that to myself, he taught me how to be nicer to myself, I mean if he could accept me for me, why couldn't i do the same?
It was only 6 months before his passing that we found out he had a form of Leukaemia which we were told would eventually worsen in time. General fatigue and loss of appetite were the main symptoms but overall, Rocky had continued to live a full and happy life, never saying "no" to a walk even up to his last days.
He now has a new place in my heart and I carry his memory wherever I go. His legacy lives on through the spreading of this necklace to customers all over the world. I am honoured to offer this gift as a memorial piece for others who have experienced a great loss as I know how hard it is to be without your 'baby' once they have crossed to the Rainbow Bridge.
Through this website and regular blog posts, I'd love for us to connect and share stories of our beloved animals as a way to ensure their legacy lives on and to provide a channel to express our gratitude for the impact these amazing creatures have made on our lives.
Feel free to 'comment' your story here or if you would like me to feature the story and a picture of your beloved fur-friend in our next blog post, email firstname.lastname@example.org and with your permission I will share this on our next post.
