The Loss of a Good Dog
With sadness of her passing, Rad Dog would like to honor Fiona, "the Ambassador" to the Sofields, who have been recent guest bloggers.
When we pick out our new found friends from a litter or from the local shelter, we're quite sure that they will become integral components of our lives, but we rarely give thought to how much our furry friends become part of our family, teach us, and fill our hearts. Yet when that dreadful day comes and they are no longer with us, we realize just how much they meant to us. But then we're left with figuring out what to do with the empty space in our lives and hearts, how to honor our pets, and how to continue living as they have taught us. I would imagine, many, like our friends Ruth and Darrell, turn to running. After all, isn't that what you were conditioned to do each morning while your dog was alive. So, if you're suffering from the recent loss of your most faithful walking or running partner, go on and lace up those shoes. Be it sun or rain, live like your dog taught you and go for a run. Trust me, you'll feel better.
We invite you to share your stories about running after the loss of a loved dog. Here is Darrell's tribute to Fiona as well as a recent article in Runners World. Running After a Loved One DiesA Very Good Dog
