When you lose a pet

One of Mrs. Marilyn’s dog is no more in this world today. She bid farewell to Nan with heavy heart and teary eyes. 

Though we all knew that Nan had a date with destiny today but still somewhere we all (at least I) hoped that she was gonna alright.

The moment I saw the post  “Bye Bye Nan”  in the morning my heart went all out for her. I felt so much pain. Just could not concentrate on writing. I did only picture posts today.

Not that I am a pet person or I knew Nan. I haven’t even seen her in person but somehow I developed love for pets over a period of time. Who will not fall in love with those furry creatures after reading such emotional posts and seeing beautiful pictures of canines and felines shared by my blogger colleagues.

One of the very reasons I never supported the idea of having a pet in our house and constantly rejected the request of my sons is that I don’t a MESSY house. I have seen my friend’s canine scratching sofa and pawing the leather couch. They tear apart books, chew shoes and I don’t want to deal with scattered toilet paper all over the floor.

Secondly once the pet is in he will be solely my responsibility. My sons will play, sleep, eat with him but his care and bringing up would be cooly left with me. Though yet not ready for it but I know I will bring one sooner or later.

Now when I see the kind of joy and happiness pets bring in human life I feel it strongly that dogs are man’s best friends. They are more than babies. When a baby leaves you forever you feel miserable. The messy house is nothing in front of the bonding they offer in return.

Rest in peace Nan.
