Recently two of my very dear friends Mieke and Mike, lost their beloved dog and family member Lewis to a brain tumour. Needless to say, they are really feeling this loss in their lives. Even though Lewis couldn’t speak with words, he communicated and shared so much.
Dogs have gained the title of “Man’s Best Friend” for one very solid and very good reason. They have the ability to really love unconditionally. They don’t care what you look like, if you did something stupid, if you’re rich or poor, if you live in a tent or a mansion. They love the essence within you and that is something beautiful and something we can all learn from.
Dogs trust their instincts, love without question, and share what they are feeling…good or bad. Does this make our world a better place? You bet.
Lewis, you made this world a better place and I thank you for it.
