August 27, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
As any pet lover knows, we always miss the pets we've lost. So today, we want to honor and remember all our pets, past and present. 
Sometime in the 1980's or early 1990's, an unknown author wrote a story poem called Rainbow Bridge, in which he (or she) envisioned a place in heaven where our pets run and play; healthy, young and strong. And where they wait to be with us again. 
This idea has taken root in many a pet-lover's heart and it's comforting to imagine your pet happy and content.Here are some great ways to Honor Your Pet on Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day 2017!
1. Donate. Why not give to a worthy cause in memory of your pet? Consider donating to the Humane Society Pet Rescue & Adoption Center, or any other organization that is meaningful to you in honor of your pet.
2. Volunteer. A donation of time can be just as valuable as money. Maybe you could get involved with your local club and volunteer at one of their events.
3. Place a headstone or garden stone in the yard. You can purchase a garden stone ready-made and customized or decorate one yourself. You might want to place it your pet's favorite outdoor spot.
4. Plant a tree. One of the nice things about a tree-planting ceremony is that you're commemorating your pet with something that will live and grow. And as it does, it will be a beautiful memory.
5. Make a scrapbook. This is another way to include the whole family in making memories. Share your favorite stories and add photos or draw pictures to illustrate. You might want to include a favorite small toy, your pet's collar or other mementos. Scrap-booking can be ongoing, too--picked up every now and then to add memories or to feel close to your pet again. You can buy a ready-to-use pet scrapbook or even download everything you need.
6. Add your pet's tag to your keychain. This is a simple way to keep him with you wherever you go.
7. Frame your favorite photo. A beautiful frame makes a photo into a portrait. Buy a plain frame and decorate it yourself or buy a customized frame.
8. Create an online memorial. You can make a memorial page on your favorite social media channel or on websites that allow you to make your own online memorial.
9. Make a piece of jewelry. You can have a custom charm made to add to a bracelet or a personalized pendant to wear close to your heart.
10. If you have a special pet park or other place you and your pet loved, create an ongoing tribute by sharing his favorite treats or toys. Set up a bucket of tennis balls or Frisbees, place a container of his favorite cookies. This way other pet lovers can share something that brought happiness to your pet's life.
Finally, remember all of the great times you and your pet had together! There is no greater bond than a person and their pet, so don't be shy in celebrating your pet's amazing life.
