When we went to bed that night, we didn’t know that would be the last night she would sleep at the foot of our bed.
I guess that’s just the thing: we never know. I live the best life I can. I try to be good to the people I love. And even to the people I don’t. But I’m not, always. With this dog, I have no regrets. She lived a good life as a beloved member of our family. She was a very good dog; so easy to love. Her sudden passing is a reminder to me–be gentle, be soft. Slow down. Forgive.
Ah, the lessons we learn from our dogs.
Even after they’ve left us.
