We are so lucky to meet some incredibly dedicated pet owners in our industry. Mary and Ken are two of the most dedicated. Mariè (pronounced Muddi) couldn’t be more loved, more cared for, or more missed if she tried. The commitment that her family have put in to ensure that she had a great quality of life right to the end is nothing short of amazing. 
Our thoughts are with Mary Mayhead and Ken and the whole family ♥

Ken and I spend our time with our dogs our constant companions. We cherish family and a small group of friends. Many of our friends have become part of our family and are dearly loved. Tuesday was a distressing day with our beautiful Mariè crossing the rainbow bridge but because of family/friends the loss was made easier to bear.....
Thank you to Sunset Home Veterinary Care, your compassionate and loving care made a time of grief a memory of peace. Thank you to Rebecca Crac Kand Pet Rest Cremations for your kind care. Bec ( non related family) took the time out of her busy day to be with Mariè in her final time on earth thank you also to her mum Alison for looking after Clara and Tilly so Bec could tend to Mariè. Thank you also to our beautiful long time friend (unrelated family) Eike Pakeha for your generosity and time In finalising Marie’s vet bill. Thank you also to another valued and also unrelated family member Vivien Csallo for your offer made to Sunset Home Veterinary Care to finalise Marie’s vet bill. When you think your world is small it is times like this that you realise how big it is because nothing with this much love, care and generosity can ever be small .

That special time

       The decision is made- now what?

 You know the day/ time is coming, but your beautiful  pet is still with you. How do you go about making that  last little time the best for them. For some pets they  may be in pain or incapable of a lot of movement,  whilst others may still have energy. We have gathered  a few ideas from families who have created special  memories in the last bit of time:

  1. Food, glorious food! We all try and give them the best but they always trying to eat things they shouldn’t… but when it comes to this point- why not? We have been told of fur-babies having fried chicken, special roasts dinners, LOTS of smackos, and even icecream! Chocolate, nuts, avocado and garlic are still no-no’s however the possibilities are endless.
  2. A special walk at their favourite spot- whether that’s just in the garden or at a particular beach/park. If they can no longer walk, perhaps just carrying them or a drive in the car. Just a special little adventure to somewhere they like to be.
  3. There does come a point where just spending time with them and having lots of pats and cuddles is just what they need. Being surrounded by those people, toys, blankets and treats and smells that they are familiar with is the most comforting environment.

     Special ways to remember/celebrate their life-

There are so many lovely ways to celebrate the life of  your beloved family member. Here are some examples

  • Lighting a candle and/ or setting up a special memorial area in your home can be a nice way to keep their memory with you. You could include things such as photos, their collar/lead/bandana, their paw print, sympathy cards from family and flowers.
  • Setting up a special place in the garden dedicated to your pet by planting a tree or burying their ashes
  • Choosing a special place to scatter your pets ashes. Somewhere that they loved (eg the beach, river, garden) or somewhere that allows you to visit them such as your garden, or a special memorial pet garden (eg at Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge).
  • Having a memorial product made up in their memory, for example a glass orb, a photo canvas/artwork , a garden ornament, jewellery or even a tattoo.
  • Contributing to a cause important to you by making a donation in your pets name
  • Donating your pets bedding/ jackets/ food/ medication ect to an animal shelter in memory of them
  • Writing a special letter to your pet or writing up a little biography/eulogy can help with the healing. It is also a really lovely process to go through with your family and kids. You could choose to keep it private or even show family and friends to help them understand what you are going through.
  • Looking through photos is another way of remembering the beautiful memories- which can really help you celebrate their life instead of grieving their loss.
