Unfortunately, not all of the lost dog cases we work on don't have as happy of an ending as we would wish for. These sweet pups may be gone from our lives, but they will never be forgotten.
We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle; easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we would still live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan....
