Dana: This Morning I Started Sobbing Uncontrollably, and Now I Understand Why

Missing Dana very much today

Miss you so much, Big Beautiful Girl! We know that you are in Heaven.

Miss you so much, Big Beautiful Girl! We know that you are in Heaven.

It was 7 months ago yesterday that we lost our precious Dana. (More about that here.) It’s tough for me not to tear up when I see this commercial about a guy and his 14 year-old best friend. (Dana was 14 when we had to say goodbye to her.)

I think the commercial must have been inspired by this viral video, a photographer’s tribute to his dog Denali, who passed at age 14. Not coincidentally, they travelled around in a Subaru, even living out of it, at one point.

There is nothing like the bond between human beings and dogs. If you are lucky enough to have a precious pup, please hug him for me. If you aren’t please consider visiting a shelter and giving one of these amazing creatures a good home.
