Our dear friend, Dr. Kim Bloomer and her husband, Donnie, bade "farewell" to their beloved neo-mastiff, Shadrich, on April 5th. My heart goes out to them. They exemplify what it means to be caring, responsible, kind, loving dog owners. (As if we actually own our dogs. More like our dogs own us.)
I know Kim and Donnie's hearts are broken right now. My heart is broken with them. There are simply no words that can express how deeply we love our companion animals and how terribly it hurts to let them go, even when we know they have reached the end of their natural days, as we all do.
This song is for you, Shadrach.
