Forever: 30 Days Abundance, Day 29

Wow, today is the 29th day of the 30 Days Abundance. I just couldn’t let this end without sharing a story of my dog Shiro who helped me to survive and stay strong during the chaotic period after World War II.

Excerpt from Chapter 7: ABUSE

My body shook. I wanted to jump out of my skin. Huddled at the base of the closed shoji screen with Shiro sitting close to me, we heard Father’s angry voice grow louder. Shiro whimpered. “Shhh, Shiro. Be quiet or we’ll get in trouble.” She cowered and licked my face over and over in an attempt to comfort me. I squeezed Shiro’s warm body, she was the only comfort I had.

Forever

Nothing is forever. Everything in life has its high and low moments. Recognize that the only certainty in life is change.

We do’t know what we’ve for until we lose it, but we also don’t know why we’ve been missing until we find it. By mastering the art of “letting go,” new opportunities will almost certainly arrive in the future.

Even today, sixty-six years later, there is hardly a day that goes by that I don’t think of the Good and bad times that I had with Shiro. People often ask me, “What kind of terrier dog was Shiro?” I always reply, “The only dog group that I know of today that resembles Shiro is the Jack Russell Terrier. “Shiro is the reason why I love this breed of dog.

In 2006, I found a dog that I loved as much as I did Shiro. I named her Yumi. After she passed at a young age of four, I wrote a book, “Yumi’s Life Lessons” in her memory. Proceeds from Yumi’s Life Lessons are donated to various organizations that support the welfare of animals, including farm animals.

Yumi's Life Lessons
"Kay hopes that "Yumi's Life Lessons" will help encourage the humane treatment of animals and motivate others to help animals that are desperately in need of a home, attention and most importantly, love.

I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being. – Abraham Lincoln-

There is one thing I know for sure, when our beloved friends pass on, they always take a piece of our heart with them.

I love to hear about your love story with your pets … who are with you now and the special pets who have left our world.
