Animals Mourn The Loss Of A Companion


My husband had to drive the 5th wheel home a six-hour drive without me, our three dogs were thinking the whole time he left me behind go back!

What started out as a trip with our dogs in our 5th wheel to visit friends turned out to be a nightmare as I almost died in a motor vehicle accident three years ago while riding as a passenger.  Select GOD Created A Miracle For Me to read more.  The anxiety built up so bad for them they could not eat for days.  Finally after twelve days in the trauma hospital I was able to come home and to this day my big dog Sampson has anxiety when I leave the house for more than a few hours.  He runs to the window looking and barking to see if I am coming home.  Animals are very intelligent and we must never forget this.

Rocket Man!


We have a couple of close friends who work as care takers on a Donkey Farm they have told us that when a Donkey dies on the farm they let the companion donkeys smell and touch the dead body to help with the healing process.  “Just like a child that does not understand what death is animals need closure too.”

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

    Whee have actually just discussed if animals love on our latest post and whee believe that their grief at the loss of a companion is a sign of their love.

    I’ve seen this time and time again… Among cats, dogs, horses. I’ve seen a horse companion die suddenly, after its partner of 20 years fell ill and died. I’ve seen animals mourn — severe behavioral changes ensuing the loss of a companion. As you say, they need closure and understanding just as we ALL do. Thanks for a much needed post…
