Old dogs don't die; they can't. They've merely run up ahead; they're waiting for us just out of sight.
Close your eyes late at night and you may smell his musky odor, or perhaps hear his snuffle from the next room.
Pay attention and you may feel his nose on your hand or the back of your calf.
When your final day comes, you can go on to meet him; he's never left you and never will,
and when you close your eyes for the last time, you'll open them again to be met with his bright eyes and wagging tail.

Old dogs don't die, at least, not those dogs who take the biggest chunks of our hearts with them when they leave us.
Those dogs are inextricably part of our souls, and they go with us wherever we are.
Though we may not see them, we know they're there because our heart is still beating; we still breathe,
and those of us who have been truly touched by a good dog know our lives really started the day we met them.

Magnificent dogs don't die. They shepherd our dreams and only allow the good ones through the gates of our consciousness.
They watch over us much as they did in life, and that moment when we step just barely outside of death or disaster,
it's because they moved our feet or they stopped short in front of us as they did in life.

You see, a good dog is something only given to a few people.
They are a gift from the universe and, though they're with us only a short time, they never really leave us.
They are loyalty and love perfected, and once we are graced with that sort of love we can never lose it.
We merely lose sight of it for a time, and that is our fault; for how can love like that ever go away?

It can't. It can't, and it never will. For these brave souls trade their hearts for ours,
and they beat together beyond sickness, beyond death.
They are ours, and we are theirs, for every sunrise and every sunset, until the sun blazes its last and we once again join the stars.

I've been blessed with so many good dogs. I'd give anything just to have another day with them. I truly believe the part about them looking out for us. I've seen it and experienced it too many times to not believe it.

When my time comes I hope I can be reunited with my special dogs. Wherever they go, that's where I wanna go. I just have to figure out how to take enough treats with me...I'm gonna need a lot.

We are blessed when old dogs love us. And the memories of them bless us long after they have departed from us.
