“But I can’t lie to you either: this losing a dog thing ain’t for sissies.”
Russ Ryan, It's Just a Dog

“Finally, when I got back home, words cannot describe how quiet the house was. The silence. There is no quieter place than the home of a dog owner the day after his or her prized pooch has passed. It was like a cleaning service had come in while I was away and sucked the life out of the place.”
Russ Ryan, It's Just a Dog

“it wouldn’t be fair to the new dog either.”
Russ Ryan, It's Just a Dog

“I've changed my ways a little, I cannot now
Run with you in the evenings along the shore,
Except in a kind of dream, and you, if you dream a moment,
You see me there.”
Robinson Jeffers

“They had buried him under our elm tree, they said -- yet this was not totally true. For he really lay buried in my heart.”
Willie Morris, My Dog Skip
