At first glance this may appear to be about my dad, who as obvious in this shot, was about 3 days away from his passing.
But this is really about the dog.
Tofu was a healer. She knew when people were sick & wouldn't leave their side if they were. She had a 6th sense of people's emotional & physical health.
My dad had his own dog who he loved more than us. (We all wanted to come back in our next life as my dad's dog.)
But it was Tofu who made him feel better in his final days. It was Tofu who laid back with him in his chair & snored.
Tofu stayed with my dad during his final 2 months of life, after which she came home to her own house, her own bed (mine), & me.
