I am crying as I write this. The tears are for your loss but also for memories of my Chibbe who was hit by a car many, many years ago and experienced the same circular obsession as Thurber. And also for the dogs I have now. One is almost 16 and the other is 14. I know my time with them is limited and I see signs of their physical decline. Your story touched me deeply. Thank you for sharing Thurber’s story. You were all lucky to have one another.
