Those who touch our lives, stay in our hearts forever.
Our pets play a vital role in our lives, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that many of us take their loss very hard. Pets are a part of our families. They cheer us up after bad days, and they always find new ways to make us smile. Losing a pet can feel like losing any other relative, and it can be very difficult to cope with.
Everyone copes with loss in their own way, but some ways seem to resonate with people more than others. One of the more recent ways to grieve and mourn involves memorial jewelry, a type of jewelry that can help you to keep your loved one close, even after they have passed away. When your pet crosses the rainbow bridge, this type of necklace can be a wonderful way to remember them. This month, we want to highlight our Paw Print Memorial Locket, which is suitable for pets of all kinds that leave little paw prints across our hearts.

Mourning Your Loss
After a pet passes away it can hit us very hard—even if we expect it. While we all know that our pets will not live forever, their loss can still feel like an impossible turn of events. It is completely natural to grieve a lost pet in the same way that you would any other loved one. When someone special to you passes away, it always hurts, even if they have paws.
As a pet parent, you owe it to yourself to mourn this loss. No one will truly understand just how important your pet was, but that does not truly matter. What matters is how you feel about your pet. You are going through a loss, and you deserve to mourn in your own way.
What We Lose When a Pet Passes Away

You can feel it in the little moments—the time of day when they would eat or get treats or their absence when you get home from work. We lose light and love from our lives when pets leave us, and that is why we mourn their loss.
What Our Pets Leave Us With
Though losing a pet can feel like impossible, it is important to remember that your pet left you with plenty to remember them by. You will always have those cherished memories—teaching them a new trick or watching them get excited about a treat. You might have a video from a time you played fetch or a song that reminds you of them. Pets ingrain themselves in our lives, and that means that they will always be with us, even if it isn’t in the physical sense.
