It brought two doses of sad news: both my childhood best friend's dog and the man friend's family dog passed. Both dogs were incredibly sweet and loving--I will miss them terribly.
Their passing has allowed me to reflect on how transient life can be and how much joy and love Sophie has brought to my life. While owning a dog is an enormous responsibility, I truly believe that the experience has made me a happier and more whole person.
I leave you with this: "Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them; filling an emptiness we don’t even know we have." - Thom Jones
