His Last Day:

  • We built a bed fort on the floor and had a slumber party
  • We lit candles and listened to the 10 hour "most calming song in the world" and stayed up all night
  • He snuggled into my arms for a couple hours and that was magical
  • I read him all the lists I made about his life and why I love him
  • I sang him this lullabye throughout the night
  • I showed him the home video I made of him of his first year with us
  • I wrote a letter of recommendation on his dog ambassadorship
  • I apologized for things. He apologized for things.
  • We went on a nice morning walk on a cloudy day
  • We sat on the back porch and ate breakfast and watched a crow and a squirrel - he barked at the squirrel
