There are those who talk of the Rainbow Bridge, the place where your four-legged friends await you. It gives some hope, doesn’t it, to think that you really just meant to say “see you later.” For myself, I’d love for this to be true.
I also know that by befriending a dog, we’re taught of love and commitment and warm laughter. And their oh-too-short time with us forces us to accept loss. We learn how to process the ache and continue our daily lives without their heartbeat alongside our own.
In our hearts, we say. We keep the memories safe there.
But it’s not easy, of course. Nothing of value is.
