Some of you are gonna massively relate & connect with today’s topic – some, maybe not so much…
It all depends on whether or not you’ve really bonded with a pet or animal, and then had to go through the horrible pain of them passing away.
One of us lost our family dog recently, and it’s been a hell of a lot sadder than we’d anticipated.
No more waggy tail & slobbery kisses to greet us at the front door.
No more Sunday snuggles on the sofa in front of a good box-set.
No more chasing sticks & ducks in the park.
It might sound trivial (especially with all the crap that’s going on in the world right now), but as anyone who’s lost a beloved pooch will tell you, it still hurts – a lot.
However – as with all other painful situations in life – some positive & useful lessons can be gleaned from this experience – as we share in today’s Life Nugget.
More than anything, losing this dog has made us realise that animals are SO MUCH FURTHER AHEAD in many ways than us humans:

You only have to watch some good old Richard Attenborough to see how incredible nature & the animal kingdom are at working together and protecting what’s important to them.
Put’s us lot to shame, really.
