The Loss of a Love
On Christmas Day, I lost the “dog love” of my life.
My amazing beautiful, loving, gentle companion Andrew Starr left his body on this day of days.
There are no words that can describe the roller coaster of emotions that blanketed our home and hearts in that moment of time.
For in loss, that one moment in time will change your life forever as you know it.
When a beautiful soul touches your heart human or animal there is a connection, a bond, a love so deep and unconditional, it can never be forgotten and you would not want it to be. Love is a gift.
Many have tried to write about the experience of loss itself or how to overcome the grief that follows, but I do not believe that anyone has the answer.
Just as we love in our own way, so do we grieve.
I am sharing my moment in time as a way of honoring this beautiful soul that I was so blessed to have been his guardian.
Andrew left his body at the young age of 10, when his sweet huge heart just stopped working for him. It was not his choice, but a destiny out of his control.
He loved every moment that life had to offer him and never took it for granted
He taught me many lessons regarding embracing love, appreciating life, deep laughter, pure joy, the importance of good health and above all “to Believe” that all things are possible.
Andrew left his body on Christmas Day, but took his rightful place to forever be the biggest Star in the Sky
I am honored; I am blessed, I am grateful to have had him in my life and forever in my heart and soul.
Here is to Andrew Starr, the dog love of my life
Thank you for sharing so much of life with me
