In Honor of my Beloved Countess, my Little Buddha Dog who passed on this day, April 8, 2011.  You are always living inside my Heart.  Countess was my greatest teacher of UNCONDITIONAL  LOVE.

If you have ever loved or cared for an animal, then Little Buddha Dog will touch your heart! Written through the voice of Countess, a little dog whose heart is full of joy, she recounts the wonderful Blessings of unconditional love shared with her Mum, and their last day together.

This short love story really is a gift from Countess to all animal lovers who have lost a Beloved pet, or for anyone considering end of life care and their pets final needs as they approach their last days of life. Faced with the decision of how to love them best during their final passage from life to death and eternity is never easy. Little Buddha Dog offers a beautiful and comforting love story of how their last day and final moments of life together were shared with grace, honor, respect and unconditional love.

Little Buddha Dog speaks the language of Love!  May you find comfort in our love story of how we shared the last day of my Little Buddha Dog’s life. . . It was such an honor to love her well, especially during the last moments of her life.

“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader.  He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.  You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”
– Author unknown

Sometimes love is also about letting go. . . even when we feel our hearts are breaking in the process. Sometimes the greatest love we can extend to our Beloved pet is the final act of caring enough to say goodbye. To release them from their suffering and knowing when to say goodbye is an act of love. This is not about us. . . this is about the precious life of an animal we cared for and loved so deeply. We must find the courage within ourselves to accept this final act as a gift of love, knowing in our hearts that Grace is fully present in these final moments of surrender.

As they are letting go of life, we are learning how to let go of them.  Their eyes and hearts tell us everything we need to know. They are ready when they are ready and we must know that, lovingly.  If we are the ones bestowed with the honor of being their caretaker during their life, then we too must be worthy of such devotion at the end of their lives. To gently ease their way out of pain and suffering is our final, courageous act of LOVE.

A Dog’s Love

Little Buddha Dog Cover

A Dog’s Love . . .

March 20, 2013

 

A dog’s love. . . It’s like no other love.  This kind of love melts your heart, like ice cream on a warm summer day.  It keeps dripping off the cone as you keep licking it, because it’s so delicious!

It’s the heartbeat at my feet every day, and every moment that I am home, and away from home, with my Beloved Dog, Countess.

She likes to snuggle up in my arms when I’m driving.  She feels close to me then. . . like the time I took her home for the very first time as a puppy, wrapped up inside my arms, and warmly placed on top of my heart.  We both felt a connection to each other in that moment, grateful to have found each other.  That was the beginning of our bond.  When she rests her chin on my shoulder and finally lets go with a sigh, I know this is the moment she feels safe and loved, warm and protected. . . and she simply lets go.  I can learn a few things from her about letting go!

Through the years she has always come back to that same place inside my arms.  This is where she feels safe, protected and loved.  It always made me smile, especially when she was older and wanted to be a baby dog inside the comfort and safety of my loving arms again.  I welcomed it, for I knew that if she found her ‘zone’ inside my arms and rested her chin on my shoulder, she would find her peace. And she would feel the Love!

I was also consciously aware that Peace and Love is what we are all longing for, in our daily lives.  There was a simple kind of peace between my dog and I that allowed us to feel Love in many splendid ways.  The kind of Love that lets you know “all is well and I am loved”.  No doubt, we both felt that in our embrace.  A sweet embrace that only a dog can give you.  It’s special…and it’s uniquely theirs.  Only you will know what that is.

With my Beloved Dog, Countess, it was a simple thing.  A gesture, a posture that only she would do when we were alone and with each other.  It was her way of expressing her love for me, and our love for each other.  I choose to honor it whenever it arrived, for I knew it was her way  of expressing her special and unique love for me.  It was my dog’s way of saying, “I love you Mum….I belong to you…I’m here with you…and you’re here with me!”

A Dog’s Love….It’s like no other love!
