Anyone who knows my friend Susannah, knew Tess. Tess and Susannah were together for the past 15 years. She was Susannah's dog, her roomate, her partner in crime, her companion when she moved across the country. Earlier this week, the time came for the two of them to say goodbye.
Some don't understand when people get so upset about the loss of an animal, they say things like "It's just a dog". Any true animal lover knows that this simply isn't the case. They can be so much more. Susannah wrote a beautiful blog post yesterday, remebering Tess. It made me cry, but also made me happy. Tess lived a great life and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
