Love your dog? Want a good cry?

My office mate, who has three dogs, sent me a link to this movie. I start­ed to watch it, real­ized what it was about, and hasti­ly stopped play­back. After I screwed up the courage, I watched it with the sound off. I don’t think I would have made it through with the sound on. So here I am, rec­om­mend­ing this movie even though I haven’t actu­al­ly seen it. I may watch it lat­er. Maybe.

Fun­ny thing is, it makes me want to ride my bike (which is some­thing I don’t do… not a “bike guy”)… and get tat­toos (which I should point out, is also some­thing I don’t do). And hug my dog. Mason’s been with us for the bet­ter part of twelve years, and I’ve been prepar­ing myself for the day he dies for sev­er­al of those years now. Just think­ing about it makes me well up. I’m going to be a wreck that day.
