if a dog has brightened your life and every day silently accepted your tears without judgement snuggled with you forgiven your faults and loved you unconditionally then you know what a gift dogs are to this world.
APW: Will never forget my Bear. No other dog can be him or will take his place in my heart, but I do look forward to the day when I can fill the void and make room for another little fur baby in my heart.
I love my doggies even if their not here in the physical world. So, yeah, your dog is there for you always. And I love my new puppies too, so do what this says and thank whatever pet you have for being there with you, through everything.
