    Hello Jasmine...

    Im deeply sorry your missing you pet....I know how they become so much part of the family...

    Sweetheart your still grieving your loss..Theirs no time limit to grief....

    Do you mind me asking what type of pet it was?..it’s okay if you don’t feel up to sharing here....

    It beautiful that you have made a memory wall..do you have pictures on the wall of the good times you shared..I’m sure your pet wouldn’t want you to be so sad, but I do understand...as I lost my pet Belgium Shepherd many years ago to a stroke..he was 9 years old....

    I went a long time before I could accept another dog..I ended up getting one from my son..then she had puppies and I kept one...I have two fur daughters now...and so much love to give them...I’m wondering if you have ever thought about getting another pet...Not to replace the one you lost...One that you could give your love to and who will also love you back unconditionally...Just my thoughts sweety...

    I will never ever forget “Boofy”...I loved him dearly, and still do....I remember the good times we had together. and know I gave him the best life I could....Like you would have given your pet the best life you could for him/her...

    Sending you my care, love and some warm hugs..🦋🤗💜.

    Grandy..

    Hello Jasmine....🤗..

    Awe..They are Beautiful pets..My two brothers used to have blue tongue lizards and bearded dragons as pets..and had them many years...It started as 1 but they went bush walking to find them and bring them home as pets....They used to sit on their shirts when they were watching tv....

    Would you ever consider getting another one, when your feeling better?

    Sending my care, love and hugs...🦋💜🤗..

    Grandy..
