As a pet sitter over the years I have felt the loss of so many pets that have touched my life. Pet sitting, we are blessed by pet owners to care for their fur
and feathered babies while they are unable to. The blessings keep coming as we get to know the unconditional love of so many wonderful pets. I found a poem I want to share that touched my heart. See, today is one of those sad days. RIP to our big sweet Turner. Vicki your loving heartbroken pet sitter shared that you had crossed Rainbows Bridge… We know you are running pain-free again with your heart-full of the love you were blessed to have shared with Julie. Always in the hearts of Julie and Vicki!
Turner passed peacefully in his home. His mama now has his paw print in a piece of ceramic to look at each day. The first picture is Turner oddly with one green eye and one yellow. The second picture is Turner trying to fit on the cats bed. He liked any ‘pillow’, his mama could put a small square of paper on the floor and he’d think it was for him to lay on.

Hi Debbie, This was a really lovely tribute to a clearly wonderful dog. Turner looked so so nice.
Not too many people except those of us in some aspect of this business, especially those who address these profound times really talk very much about the sadness.
FYI: if you need an inexpensive but really great gift for your client, we offer a beautiful condolence package. We can engrave, drop ship or just send it to you to give. Visit http://www.memorialpaw.com. I service many people in the professional end of the industry as well as just people who are aware how important it is to
acknowledge the sadness and sense of loss a grieving pet parent is feeling. Not to mention people like yourself who have also bonded with those “kids”. I am so sorry for their loss and yours. I just joined Petsit International.
