“I am glad you are here with me. Here at the end of all things, Sam.”

Lord of The Rings. Tolkien.

Our senior dog, run out of steam at the end of her walk at the end of the day, and my husband carrying her the rest of the way home. She didn’t last many months longer after that before we had to put her down. She was almost eighteen.

This quote is just a snippet of a story about a friendship and we were so fortunate to have a beautiful friendship with this lady, and lucky to be able to be with her at the end of all things.

She’s gone almost three years now, and we still miss her every day.

    • Hi Mary, thank you so much! She was. In fact, she could communicate so much just with her eyes that we thought there might be a human deep inside her! There’s nothing quite like a dog’s love, hey?
      I hope you have a wonderful day!

    • Hi Leya,
      Thank you so much. And I so appreciate your stopping by to comment.
      They sure are, aren’t they? This one stole my husband’s heart right from the get-go. What’s that song lyric, “He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother”? Well, I guess that’s how you and I both felt about our dogs, hey? Hope you have a fabulous weekend.


  1. Oh, that kind of breaks my heart … we have a senior dog now and her walks are getting shorter and shorter. We’ve also just moved and I fear she is not liking her new surroundings very much. 😦 Your dog and your story are beautiful.

  2. Senior dogs are so special. It’s always hard moving to a new place, no matter how old we are, but she’s lucky to have you there as a constant. I feel so sad for these older dogs who get put in a care / rescue facility because their owners have passed away, and then everything is different for them. We are all just doing the best we can though. Your love will carry her through this.
    Thanks so much for stopping by!
