Corgi Love by Sandra Merwin

Corgi Love is a colored pencil drawing soon to be available on ebay to benefit the Old Dog Haven.

Have you ever wondered how many tears are shed for our pet companions. Recently a dear friend's dog died suddenly. She asked the question: How can it hurt so much to say good bye to a dog? Truthfully, tears reveal the depth of the relationship a dog can bring into our lives. The relationship with a dog is unusual. Who else sleeps on the end of your bed? Who else licks your face? Who else waits by the window for you when you leave?

Perhaps author James Thurber said it best: "If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons."
