Comment on Pet loss and self-forgiveness by Camille Sinclair.
See this post carries all the way to 2022. I’m so glad I found this as I’ve been devastated. My mom died 8 months ago and all kinds of things are coming up around pets I’ve had and felt I wasn’t what I am now to my pets. One of my pets, I accidently killed, she climbed under a recliner whose back liner was out. when I pushed it back I killed her and had music on so didn’t hear her. I was sedated for 3 days. That dog was everything to me. I came home one night to find my brother spanking my Chow Chow for pooping on the carpet. I made him stop but I’ll never forget how he looked at me. I’d bought him for my husband but my husband was not as good to him as I would have liked and I was working long hours. I eventually rehomed him to a loving couple. There are others but I won’t go into the situation. suffice to say I never intentionally hurt an animal and am a MUCH better pet mommy now. I have 2 cats and a dog(Chihuahua) whom I adore. Maybe too much, but I don’t care they are my babies. My goal is to adopt at least 5 more dogs from shelters and have them live on 5 acres with me. There are coyotes, bears, and cougars where I live so I’ll have to safeguard my home. I’ll spare no expense to do so. Animals are better than humans in my opinion. Thanks for listening. I’m going to practice self-forgiveness and have a lot of work to do. These tools will help me. Blessings to all.
