Happy Monday, all! This Pet Doctor Barbie post was probably the most labor intensive to date, but it was a labor of love. I hope you like it.
Pawcurious Media and Dr V present:
“A Wish for Wings That Work”
Hi everyone. Thanks so much for coming to Pet Loss Anonymous.
We’re all here because we have struggled deeply with the loss of a pet. Our friends, our relatives have all noticed just how tough it’s been. It has been suggested that perhaps our grief is a little excessive and we haven’t appropriately moved past it, so here we are.
This is a really helpful way to come together to get past our grief.
I’ll invite everyone to come up and share your stories. Thank you for bringing your pictures along for inspiration.
I’ll go ahead and start. I’m Dr. V. I lost two amazing dogs last year named Emmett and Mulan, and it pretty much floored me. Even though I have two wonderful dogs now, I worry that I will never bond with them the way I did with these two…..(goes on for a while)
Hi. I’m Lisa. I loved my heart dog Bailey so much that she was a part of my wedding. I wouldn’t have it any other way….
! What are they doing down there? BAILEY!!
Are they talking about us again, Blade? I love when she talks about the wedding.
Yes, but look at them- I think they’re in some sort of Grievers Anonymous meeting! I think they’re trying to stop talking about us!
Why would they do that?
I don’t know, Bailey. This calls for action.
MULAN! I have an assignment for you!
For me? Will I get to see my master again? She is a good and kind master and I miss her so.
There she is. Look at them. Someone has put it into their heads that they need to get over us and stop talking about us. I mean, REALLY.
I need you to put a stop to that nonsense. If you succeed, you’ll get your reward.
…So anyway, I pretty much figured out right then and there that dogs are so much better than people and I will never meet a person that I like as much as I do Blade. We were soulmates.
I think I’m ready to talk now.
Hi, I’m Bob. I don’t even have a dog. I actually came here to meet chicks, but I learned something today.
You all keep telling these stories like it’s something to be ashamed of, but you all sound totally normal to me. So what if you still want to talk about your pet? So what if you’re still sad? My mom threw away my vintage Farrah Fawcett poster when I was 15 and I STILL haven’t gotten over it.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, it’s cool that you’re here talking about your pets and I think it’s a GOOD thing, not a bad thing. You loved them. Later ladies.
You know, I think he’s right. I never felt like I was doing anything wrong anyway.
Me neither. Want to head over to Happy Hour? I have some awesome stories about Blade you guys would love.
Sounds good to me. Let’s get outta here.
…hey….did you hear that? Was that the fire alarm?
I hear it too! Maybe the bell choir is practicing upstairs?
My Master will be so proud of me! I love her and she loves me.
