The Big Paws with Dogs Trust

The Big Paws

If you’ve ever welcomed a dog into your home and heart, you know the special bond, unconditional love and dedicated companionship a dog brings to your family. Seeing their tails wag when you walk in the door, feeling their nose nudge your hand or watching them zoom around the garden are the simple but joyous pleasures that help us to forget about our busy day and stresses in life.

When a dog passes away, those moments of happiness leave with them and are replaced with a devastating feeling of grief. No matter how prepared we are for it, how old the dog is or how long or short a time they spent with you, it can be a very difficult time. They’re not just a dog, they were your family, your best friend. The pawprints they leave on your heart are there forever.
