Hey Jack Boy,
I never imagined mom and dad going before you – and you ending up with me. Yet, here we are, 11 years later and your head is in my lap as I sit on the vet’s floor watching you fall into a peaceful nap. I always thought I’d have a chance to take a better picture of you. What was it about the camera that you didn’t like, anyway? I wanted to remember you before the fatty tumors and your coat got dull. You always reminded me of a sea captain: handsome, watchful, and wise. Tutu and I miss you so much. The day after you died, I let her out of the kennel and she ran ahead of me. You always made me feel important to you when you’d take a couple of steps and then turn around and come to me for a pat before you’d take off and circle back to me three or four more times. I hung your collar on the wood rack so that I can hear your tag clink when the wind blows and imagine you coming to me. Or that maybe you’re running with mom and dad somewhere else.

Loving and bittersweet. Thank you for allowing me to also witness, even briefly, what it is like to be important in this dog's life.
