Sitting with my Bergie, grooming him, petting him, offering him any comfort I can in his last moments. How many, I don’t know, but I feel that it’s imminent.

I hope that I’ve done right by him. I pray his transition is peaceful. I thank Adonai for blessing our home with His creature.

I’m the type that needs ritual, needs to acknowledge my grief and the life it represents. I found some guidance and comfort here.

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” –

Anatole France

ETA: my sweet boy Bergie passed over the rainbow bridge about 20 mins after I posted this, about 11:45 pm.

Good night sweet boy.


  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. He was a family member and it’s going to be different without him. May the memory of him truly be a blessing

    • Thanks Mo.

  2. I’m so sorry for your loss. The good, and maybe bittersweet, thing is that our loved ones stay with us.

    • Thank you.
