I am without words…..
Over the last couple of weeks, I have lost two great friends. Two friends that were full of life, full of happiness and full of love. Two friends that cared for me regardless of how I treated them or how I talked about them or how I viewed them. Two friends that I could always count on to be by my side, regardless of the situation.
With their passing, I have come to realize that I have under estimated my love for dogs. I have under estimated their importance in our lives and their importance in our overall well being. Often times I have told my wife “a dog is just a dog”. Poppycock. A dog is not just a dog. A dog is a true friend. A dog is a member of the family who deserves the treatment and respect we show those we love.
A wise man once asked “if you lock your wife and your dog in the trunk of a car; when you open it up, who will be happy to see you? It is no wonder that a dog is truly “man’s best friend”
I am saddened by the passing of Briley and Rowdy. Their love and friendship will be greatly missed. God speed to you both and thank you for all the wonderful memories.
