145 of 210 : Rusty

How I adored him! Everyone did, really, even the cats, who’d weave between his legs and try to trip him, or would taunt other dogs then run to him for protection. Infinitely patient, Rusty was half Boxer, half Great Dane, all heart. I thought he’d live forever. I was wrong.

In your heart he'll never die.

The damnable thing about dogs is their unconscionably short life. They are so superior to human beings in so many ways, it's only right that they should live longer than we do.

Oh. Don't know what to say, but I want to say something that comforts over that one. All the dogs that have gone before us...
