Hey there. I'm so very sorry you lost such a good and loyal friend. I know what its like to lose a loved woofer. The only thing that provides me
comfort is to know how that dog was loved dearly in its life, and to know that no matter how much we love them, no matter how much our hearts ache
when they are gone from us, they can never ever outlive us. They will always pass before us, and we will have to see them off.
Its better that way really. They are vastly intelligent, but they probably don't comprehend death like we do. If we were to pass before them,
they'd be lost, they'd be scared, and sad, but they wouldn't know any better. We have the luxury of knowing. While he won't come back, your dog lived
a good life, and was loved so strongly. That must be something, to live a life, loyal to someone who loves you truly and wholy. What a very lucky dog
he was. To know that you were there to tell him what a wonderful creature he was, before he went. It must have been so comforting.
Thank you for loving your pup. Thank you for providing him comfort and love in his final hours. We are lucky to have them while we do, we are
lucky to make the memories we make with them, and to have the loyalty that we have earned from them while we have it.
Every dog I've had since my first dog, I've seen as an opportunity to provide and receive a love, and a friendship unlike any other. No two dogs
of mine have been alike, in the relationship aspect. Each has their own personality, and each has its own lessons in life to teach you.
You will always love this dog, and you will always miss him dearly, but one day you will be able to breathe a little better knowing what an
amazing relationship you were so blessed to experience with him, and knowing he had a happy loved life, and he is no longer in any pain, and is living
it up with the rest of our friends who have passed on.
