AND EVER HAS IT BEEN THAT LOVE KNOWS NOT ITS OWN DEPTH UNTIL THE HOUR OF SEPARATION -Khalil Gibran
This passage is so true that I placed it on the memorial cards I sent to friends and family when Raisin, my Chocolate Labrador, passed away. To this day, I feel the depth of loneliness without her.
It is for this reason that I was called to be a home hospice veterinarian. To be called upon in a family’s time of need and share the passing of a beloved pet is a sacred experience and one that I am honored to be part of.
