National Pet Memorial Day

14 Sep


 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Today, September 14 is National Pet Memorial Day.  National Pet Memorial Day is always the second  Sunday in September.  I think it’s a fabulous day.  This day is an opportunity to remember the pets that have passed away but that are *never* forgotten.  These pets have touched our hearts, brightened our lives, comforted us and now are over the Rainbow Bridge.  They are still in our hearts and always will be.  Today, let us remember them and fall in love with them all over again.

Bacon’s mom was able to share some pictures with me of some of her pets that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  They will always hold a special place in her heart.  Please share your pictures and favorite stories today my friends.

You’ve heard Bacon speak of Tybee (a purr thing, brother to Hemi) and Honie Bear and Luckie Bear (the two pooches) that used to live here at the Hotel Thompson.  Here are their pictures – enjoy.

    We’ll be remembering all those who came before me today……Mom gets leaky eyes sometimes talking about them but I understand that…..I’m here now to keep Mom company but one day I’ll join all those who were before – just as we all will……….honoring the angels who watch over us is a nice way to pay tribute to all the love that’s shared thanks to pets!

    Hugs, Sammy

    Aww Bacon! Those pictures are beautiful. I wasn’t aware of this special day, but I have marked it for next year… thanks so much! We know they are always in our hearts anyway, right?

      They are *always* in our hearts and never forgotten. Here we try to remember the great times – not the sad times. I don’t think they would want to see us sad, right? XOXO – Bacon

        No! I think that’s absolutely right, Bacon. I remember my dear departed friends in the same way, and I think that once the time passes enough for you to be able to see all the happy times and remember the fun and laughter, you owe it to them to only think of that!
        Hugs, Carrie and Pups x ❤ x
