I take comfort in knowing that he’s happy. I know there’s always a piece of him that will be in my heart. I know there’s a piece of him that will be in each and every one of his friend’s hearts. I know he has a million doggie and human friends waiting for him, and these are the things that matter.

We’ll go day by day, moment by moment if we need, cherish the good moments, and eat cookies or cheese whiz in the bad. And the next time you are at your local shelter thinking about adopting a dog, look to the left of the adorable puppy, you may just see a white faced platty-pus dog that will change your life forever.
