Unfortunately, several of my friends' dogs have recently passed away. It breaks my heart into a million little pieces every time, not only for their new loss, but also because it reminds me of all my dogs who have gone to doggie heaven themselves.
Luckily, yesterday I spent some time chatting with my friend Abby. We talked about our fluffy old man dogs who are no longer with us — I laughed, cried, and most importantly, remembered all the happiness and love they brought me.
So, here's to the love, the broken hearts, and the joy of rescuing a new friend when the timing feels right. Somehow our hearts always manage to put themselves back together, growing bigger and stronger, even when tiny pieces are missing. 💖
