They appreciate your love and time they will do the same for you and they will want you to do it after they leave you to heaven. they might not talk but they are so loyal and they don’t want you to be alone .
Before humans die, they write their last will & testament, give their home & all they have, to those they leave behind. if, with my paws, I could do the same, this is what I’d ask…
To a poor and lonely stray I’d give:
– My happy home .
– My bowl & cozy bed, sofa pillows and all my toys.
– The lap, which I loved so much.
– The hand that stroked my fur & the sweet voice which spoke my name.
I’d will to the sad, scared shelter dog, the place I had in my human’s loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.
So, when I die, please do not say ” I will never have a pet again, for the loss and pain is more than I can stand.”
Instead go find an unloved dog, one whose life has held no joy or hope and give MY place to HIM.
