I always believe that dogs have a secret mission of saving the world. I lost a puppy when I was in grade school. She died when I was in the hospital. I thought then that maybe that puppy asked God to take her life so I can be well. I lost another one a few years after, and that grief was one of the earliest emotions I've shared with my brother. And then last night, just as I finished fixing a relationship, Cupcake, our puppy, passed away. This time, my dog sacrificed her life to save my relationship.
I love you, Cupcake. I know you're in dog heaven now. Thanks for all the saving. I'll always thank the Lord every time I remember you.
