As some of you know, I lost my little boy, Wee, on Sept. 24th. We were together for almost 20 years! The grief is still overwhelming at times, but with the help of family and the support and kindness I've received from other grieving pet parents at this site, I've managed to survive my worst nightmare.
Today I received an invitation from the Animal Hospital where I took my little boy to be released from his pain. It seems they have a memorial service for all the pets who passed away that particular year. The invite also included an ornament to be decorated by the pet's owner, and hung on the tree at the hospital.
I had already planned on creating an ornament, in his honor, for our own family tree this year.
I'm so conflicted. The day my Wee died was the worst day of my life. It was horrific and I hate the thought of being back in that place, again. Especially seeing the doctor who performed the euthanasia.
I don't know what to do. I don't want to pass up an opportunity to honor and memorialize my little boy. It's the least I can do for him now.
Any thoughts or opinions would be greatly appreciated......
Mary (Wee's Mom)
