On The Loss Of A Beloved Pet

A Story by Willys Watson

On The Loss Of A Beloved Pet:

She came into my life years ago, a gift from a friend, and I named her Susie, a name that seemed to match her personality fairly well. Susie was already house-broken and was as low-maintenance a pet as you can imagine and I couldn’t have asked for a more compatible and amicable companion.

I know how people personally feel about their own pets and how many brag that they’ve got the cutest, most beautiful and loving pet in the world. But I can assure you all that during her prime Susie had no peers among her type, at least not to me.

Some wonder how long the grieving process should last before we find a replacement to lavish our affection and attention on and it depends on the emotional nature of the human I suppose. But after six months my friend though I really needed a new companion and I finally agreed.

The problem is finding a replacement for her is damn near impossible. Her kind can’t be bought at pet stores and they won’t be found at local animal shelters. Perhaps on-line I may be able to find one of her rare breed for sale but the price tag would much higher than my budget allows.

All I can say, my friends, is that if you have one love it and care for it as long as possible because once your Pet Rock passes on he or she simply can’t be replaced.
