Clayton, Spenser, Scooter and Sherman: then and now.

June 11, 2009

Kellie sent an email telling me that James Herriot had said that you should never feel guilty about getting a new friend, that you can never replace your old friend; but the new dog is there to help you heal and begin again. Wow, this really resonates. Last night Phillip took Sherman out to walk in a special place. He took his camera and when I downloaded the photos there were three of Spenser on his last day and I had to catch my breath. But then there was Sherman, all perky and bright and eager to remind us of why we share our lives with dogs.
