Free Tennis Balls From Phoebe the Dog

If you have loved and lost an animal, this blog is for you.  I have met many people who have showed me a grave in their backyard.  I have toured a pet cemetery in Boston where a beloved horse was buried by means of a crane.

I came across this tribute to Phoebe who joined the “Happy Hunting Grounds” that Native American Indians believe is the reward for all animals.  Phobe lived in Western Australia and her owners put a box of balls on the beach with her picture.dogs dogs



The note reads:

In loving memory of Phoebe.


In loving memory of Phoebe.

Please help yourself to a tennis ball for your dog to enjoy. You may wish to pop it back in the box afterwards for another pooch to enjoy. Remember to live each moment just like your dog: with unconditional love, loyalty and happiness.

Phobe, you were lucky to have such loving owners, or should I say “friends”?
