Losing a pet is not a trivial matter for many
Gypsy had been my loyal companion for over 16 years. She had slept with her head on my pillow after my divorce, licking the tears off my face. She went everywhere with me in the car, including sitting on my lap all the way from Alaska to Massachusetts and back. We had walked, hiked, biked and skied together. She had seen parts of my psyche and soul no one else had, and still loved me unconditionally. Now she lay on my husband's lap in our living room, semi-comatose, while the veterinarian prepared the injection to end her life. Even though I had begun the grieving process, and worked with my grief therapist on ``letting go'' of Gypsy, the depth of my sadness was profound. We had already discussed what we wanted to do with her body, and the weather cooperated. We loaded her into the backpack, hiked up to one of her favorite meadows, and laid her out in the fairy-like world of dense underbrush under a tall tree. There I hugged her an said my last goodbyes. It has been over six years since that sad day, and I still feel an ache in my heart as I write about it.
