Most of us have had pets, like Junior, pictured above. All of us who have had pets have had pets who were not just a part of our lives, but a piece of us.
Most us could not have put our feelings down in words; although some of us have tried.
James Lileks has just lost a pet as well, and has described not only the pet, but the multi-year relationship exquisitely.
For those of us who have lost pets, you will empathize and relive your own pets.
For those who have not; this will introduce you to the experience and the value of that relationship.
