Pets come in various species, sizes, and shapes and yours are usually the most exciting and cutest of them all. You are not a pet lover if you cannot spend the whole day talking about your dog. Pet loss is one of the significant battles pet lovers struggle with, and it will challenge you. It will also haunt your recovery, especially if the only memories you have about your dog are your unsupported stories. Pet memories are perfect ways of paying tribute to your pets, helping you get through your grief and healing journey. One way to reminisce on your favorite moments with your dog is to put all those photos in your phones’ gallery to good use with photo books. The photo albums have a way of expressing your love and devotion to your furry, lovable, and quirky best friend, whether dead or alive.
What should you include in your pet’s photo book?
Grief after a pet loss can be a traumatic experience. Adjusting to life after the loss can make you have overwhelming sad feelings. While some pet lovers will turn to friends and families who relate to the grief, others will opt to flip through a photo book’s pages to overcome the grief. Instead of casting them off, holding onto memories is a healthy way to move on after a pet loss. Reminiscing on your good times with your pet will strengthen your memories of your departed companion.
There are various options on what to include in your photo book and how you decide to organize your story will depend on your unique experiences with the fallen hero. What you might include in the photo book include:
- How you met
Where did you first meet your fur baby? Whether your first meeting was in a pet shelter or the pal strayed into your backyard, your meeting needs to be highlighted. You may also include other significant milestones that happened soon after your furry pal joined your family.
- Heart-warming sayings and poems
There are endless creative quotes you can include in your album to accompany your pet’s photos. Additionally, you may also include heartfelt poems to express the fun times you had as a pet owner. Poems capturing your emotions and gratitude for the years you spent together will express your anticipation of reuniting with your fur baby someday. Besides the sayings and lyrical poetry, you may also include a customized tribute in honor of your paw-some friend.
- Thoughts from your companion’s point of view
Every pet owner and lover will tell you they know what the paw pal or feathery pal was thinking about in every shot. As a result, you might want to include a segment in your album where you have your buddy’s thoughts and what he would say in a particular moment.
- Organized memories
The chronological order of your lives together will show the progression you had as friends throughout the years. The shots may include your family trips, holidays, and several other adventures that elicit your relationship.
