On Friday as I left the kids at school, a gang of crying children rushed up to me to let me know some sad news.
This lovely boy, Frodo (one of Oscar’s puppies from his first litter), had cancer in the mouth and was going to be put down that very day.
Before Frodo and his family moved away, he was a regular fixture in our house, staying here for company and exercise several times a week.
I walked home from school with a very heavy heart.
Then I thought of all those tears and how he had touched the lives of so many little ones. How he was never too tired to play or walk or run.
How he was always happy to see you, no matter what.
I remembered all the joy he had brought to so many, including myself – and I felt a bit better.
This surely speaks of a life well spent and a dog well loved.
You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.” — Robert Louis Stevenson
