    George

    I did in May and I'm finally writing about this now. Since I was a young child, I've always loved animals. I was 13 and working at a farm in exchange for riding the owner's horses. Well then came George.  He was a nice Arabian Bay Gelding. He was 2 years old and green broke...

    Three summers ago I lost my family dog.

    She was the sweetest and funniest yellow lab in the world. She loved everybody and was such a gentle creature. She also loved food and exploring which was the only time she got in trouble. She could be scary when it came to her favorite food. She could also be hilariously...

    I have just lost my pet rabbit yesterday

    evening, and the grief is unbearable. I've had her for 3 years, she was adopted from the local humane society. I loved Bella so very much. I can't seem to find anybody who understands how horrendous I truly feel. Bella died in my arms on the way to the vet. I cried and cried and...

    My rabbit was 11,5 years old

    when he died last year. A lot of people find it ok to be upset about a rabbit's death when you are still a child, but they couldn't understand why I, 18 years old, felt so terrible. If it's a cat or a dog, fine, but a rabbit...? No, they don't get it. He was my medicine. I love...

    I've lost a few of them.

    Boots, the first cat I ever knew, died of feline Leukemia when I was 3. Then there was Pat Cat. She got hit by a car when I was 7. Then the first dog I ever had, the first pet that was officially mine, died of a heart attack in 2010. I don't have good luck with pets :(

    two days ago my dog got through our fencing,

    someone spotted the dog in my neighbourhood and immediately killed him. I can't comprehend why some human beings are so despicable. How can you killed an innocent animal knowing fully well whom he belonged to.
