Fur Babies are Family

"Pet" is too small a word.

We have some really sad news – last weekend, we said goodbye to our dear dog Olive 💔
This community, more than any other, knows how devastating it is to lose a furry (or feathered, or bescaled) family member. “Pet” is too small a word to encapsulate the love, joy and meaning they bring to our lives. Olive was our family, our little girl, and life won’t be the same without her.
We’re sending so much love to anyone in this community who has also lost a beloved companion – we see you and feel your pain. Society tends to minimise that bond, but I want you to know that your love is just as valid as any other kind of love 💝
We’ll take some time to grieve and process everything but we’re so grateful to have the love and support of this amazing community to keep us going.

Thanks so much for being here for us.
