Rochester, NH, Animal Hospital goes above and beyond
If you’ve ever had to say goodbye to a furry baby, the agony and grief are almost hard to articulate. It really is as if you had lost a member of your family. The first few weeks are particularly painful because you are used to being welcomed by your four-legged friend and his absence is like a gaping hole in your heart. Chuck Kirkland and his family recently had to say goodbye to their beloved Snoopy. After 14 years, it was time for Snoopy to cross the Rainbow Bridge. Pets bring so much joy into our lives, but the only problem is that we never have enough time with them.
Chuck and his family have been bringing Snoopy to Broadview Animal Hospital in Rochester, New Hampshire for a long time. When it was time for Snoopy to leave, their staff was with him during his final moments on the land side.
The Broadview crew sent Chuck and his family a handwritten card expressing their condolences. Chuck posted a photo of the card on the You KNOW you’re from Rochester, NH if you… Facebook group:
