This past week three dogs that I know of, but have never met, moved on. For a long while now I have enjoyed reading about Lilac and Drive in their blogs. They had wonderful full lives, their people loved them dearly and posted some of the warm memories of the many years they shared together. The other dog that moved on was Darnell. He was also loved dearly by his person and had found his forever home of just four months. Unfortunately Darnell escaped the pet sitters yard and after much searching we found he had met an unforgiving end at the near by highway.
I don't claim to know much about the after life, but if there is such a place, I'm sure dogs are there. And so Darnell if you have gone to such a place, seek out Lilac and Drive. They went slightly before you and they will tell you how it was supposed to be. They will tell you of the years of love and companionship that were planned for you and you can tell them how you were loved even if it was for a short while. I'm sorry we couldn't find you in time.
