“And it is exceedingly short, his galloping life.
Dogs die so soon.
I have my stories of that grief, no doubt many of you do also.
It is almost a failure of will,
a failure of love, to let them grow old
—or so it feels.
We would do anything to keep them with us,
and to keep them young.
The one gift we cannot give.”
-- Mary Oliver "Dog Songs"
