Mourning the passing of pets

Pet Sympathy Quotes

Dogs don’t know about beginnings, and they don’t speculate on matters that occurred before their time. Dogs also don’t know — or at least don’t accept — the concept of death. With no concept of beginnings or endings dogs probably don’t know that for people having a dog as a life companion provides a streak of light between two eternities of darkness. — Stanley Coren

It is a fearful thing to love what death can touch. — New England Tombstone

The stars are constantly shining, but often we do not see them until the dark hours. — Earl Riney

Death is the passing of life. And life is the stringing together of so many little passing’s. — Rabbi Rami M. Shapiro

All that is worth cherishing in this world begins in the heart not the head. — Suzanne Chazin

The death of a pet can trigger a grief response that is as deeply felt as when a friend or family member dies. — Michael Murphy

I have sometimes thought of the final cause of dogs having such short lives and I am quite satisfied it is in compassion to the human race; for if we suffer so much in losing a dog after an acquaintance of ten or twelve years, what would it be if they were to live double that time? — Sir Walter Scott

Friendship doubles our joy and divides our grief. — Swedish Proverb

The average dog is a nicer person than the average person. — Andrew “Andy” Rooney

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. — Henri Nouwen

A true friend is the greatest of all blessings, and the one which we take the least thought to acquire. — La Rochefoucauld

Unlike some people who have experienced the loss of an animal, I did not believe, even for a moment, that I would never get another. I did know full well that there were just too many animals out there in need of homes for me to take what I have always regarded as the self-indulgent road of saying the heartbreak of the loss of an animal was too much ever to want to go through with it again.To me, such an admission brought up the far more powerful admission that all the wonderful times you had with your animal were not worth the unhappiness at the end. — Cleveland Armory

No heaven will not ever Heaven be; Unless my cats are there to welcome me. — Unknown

All that is worth cherishing begins in the heart, not the head. — Suzanne Chapin

If there is a heaven, it’s certain our animals are to be there. Their lives become so interwoven with our own, it would take more than an archangel to detangle them. — Pam Brown

A cat’s soul is always true. — Unknown

Thus, blessed to those affectionate pets with oft-quoted sayings that will be a tribute to vocalize your love, sympathy and quest for reuniting. — Mark Twain

Hope is the thing with feathers — that perches in the soul — and sings the tune without words — and never stops, at all. — Emily Dickinson

His ears were often the first thing to catch my tears. — Elizabeth Barrett Browning

At one time a synod of the Catholic Church was held in which the question of whether or not animals had a soul was discussed very seriously: would good dogs go to paradise and bad ones, who stole slices of lamb, burn in hell eternally. The denial of the soul was voted: it is enough for the honor of the species that the question was posed. — Alfred Barbou

If you have a dog, you will most likely outlive it; to get a dog is to open yourself to profound joy and, prospectively, to equally profound sadness. — Marjorie Garber

My grief lies all within, and these external manners of lament are merely shadows to the unseen grief that swells with silence in the tortured soul. — William Shakespeare

I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive. — Gilda Radner

Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you. Twas heaven here with you, I loved you so. — Isla Paschal Richardson

For those who love dogs, it would be the worst form of a lie to call any place where dogs were banned “Paradise.” Certainly no loving God would separate people from their canine friends for eternity. — Stanley Coren
