Exactly one year ago I had to say goodbye to the best dog ever. I will never forget all the beautiful moments we spent together. I miss how he would never leave my side, no matter what. How he would always be interested in meeting new kinds of animals (giraffes, camels, zebras, horses, deers, rats, rabbits, hamsters, birds, ...). How his best friends were stray cats living in the neighborhood, even though he never liked the cats he was living with (maybe because he had to share the bed with them). How bad his seizures have been sometimes. He never sat by the table waiting for someone to give him some food. He couldn't care less if we were eating. He knew me so well. He loved me no matter what. He was always so happy to see me. I miss my best friend.
“A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.”
