Pet Loss Podcasts
Lesson 24 Chapter 4
The following podcasts are from my podcast, The DOGgone Truth.
The first was my farewell audio to my primary Teacher Dog, Shadrach the Neo Mastiff in 2011. He is the reason for everything I do.
The second one was my farewell to my sweet, 15 month old Great Dane, Meshach in 2012. The pain was wrecking me after losing these two dogs. Their names are taken from the book of Daniel in the Bible.
The third show was in September 2018 when my closest friend, Breanne Altherr lost her primary Teacher Dog, Merlin a pitbull. Her two were like a combination of Shadrach and Meshach as you'll learn when you listen in.
The fourth show is when we loss our beautiful Carolina Dog, Schatzie January 10, 2019 and the fifth one is how we've dealt with our grief. I hope our sharing helps you through your own losses.

This is a revised version of what I wrote to my friend Bre recently - this is not an easy thing for us to handle, but this is how I handle it all.
"We miss so many things when they're gone. Then eventually all you can remember are all those good, funny, loving times and be grateful for the time you had even as you still miss their physical presence.
So you do things like create classes written in first dog by one of them. Or you write their stories that get published in a book about vaccine dangers and the immune system so other dogs won’t have to suffer what they did.
Or you do a podcast you’re certain very few listen to but you must do it so those few dogs are helped.
Or you educate one-on-one doing nutrition consults and plant seeds of doubt about vaccines being protective (they are not).
Or you write social media posts you’re certain no one cares about but hope even one hears.
Or you create classes hoping even just one will take it so their dogs are spared...
And the story continues
...and we never grow weary of doing good...even though some days you want to curl up in a ball and secretly wished you could’ve gone with them...but know that would be selfish.
Yes, we go on because we must love not our own lives unto death and love everyone and everything less than we do Him, so ALL of His fullness fills us.
Then we can simply BE love. Free of others and ourselves so we can just be love rather than needing it. Then we’ll be like Him, which is why we’re here in the first place." ~Dr. Kim Bloomer
