This article was heartwarming and comforting. Lin found it. Somehow, though it is about love for a dog, I find it comforting when I think of a friend's death that I have yet to write about. It's a beautiful expression of the kind of love, simple and faithful, that dogs bring into human life, and that, too rarely, humans bring to the life of other humans.
