The One-Week Anniversary

Sept 16, 2012

Peaches, I miss you more than ever. Today is the one week anniversary of your death, and I still can't get over the fact that you won't be here in the morning greeting me by running on your wheel, or being sleepy when I come home from school.

Some might say, You were just a hamster, what does it matter? It does matter. You mattered a lot to me Peaches. I hope you died knowing that. You were my very first pet ever, you will forever have a special spot in my heart. No other pet will replace you.

To other pet owners, it does get better. Even though Peaches's death was a week ago, the hurt still feels raw. However, take comfort in knowing that they died knowing you. You were the bright spot in their life, for however long, it didn't matter to them. They loved you. It took me a while to realize this, but it's true.

I take comfort in the fact the Peaches died peacefully in her sleep, she was the last person she ever saw. I miss you Peaches. You helped me through tough times. I hope you have the best time up there over the Rainbow Bridge, eating all the veggie puffs you want. Until we meet again.

Love your owner,
