Your portrait of a black and white creature with the self-appointed role of canine host on our property is very well-drawn.
I also identified with the tug on your heart strings as you sought to encapsulate the emotions of losing a special friend. Very evocative.

I identified with our farm part Austrailian Shepherd. Well said and how those strings pull at the heart to sometimes know the right caring. Thank you.
What a beautiful mixture of blessings of friendship with man's best friend and the pain that comes along when circumstances doesn't give much choice. My heart broke for the narrator, and if this is true, I am so sorry you had to go through this as pets are such a gift from God. We have had our share of canines and felines and each one has played an important part in our family, through fun growing times and in pain of the inevitable. Well done!
