Honor Flags are a Tibetan ritual to honor people (and pets), that are no longer with us. At the BlogPaws conference last month, we could build an honor flag for our pets.
I created several for the two springer spaniels who have meant so much to me. Kaylee, who inspired me to write, and Cassie, who inspired me to become a blogger. Read more about Cassie’s brain tumor here, and Kaylee’s osteosarcoma here.
I felt both sadness and joy at seeing the long rows of honor flags and reading the comments.
I also wanted to honor my mom and all her pets. She died in 2013 and the cockers that I show so often on this website, Buffy and Chipper, were her dogs. I often ask them if they still remember her – likely not, but if she walked in through the front door as if she had been on a long vacation, I think they would. Mom showed me how to care for a dog and have them bring meaning to our lives.
World Pet Memorial Day was either the second Sunday of June, or the second Tuesday. I also heard it was June 14th, which is what I was going by. Whenever it was, or is, please celebrate your pets that have gone over the rainbow bridge with me.
