Thankful for…a dog’s loyalty

As you celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday yesterday, did you take a few minutes to think about what you are thankful for in your life? There are many, many things I am thankful for. For example, I am eternally grateful for the unconditional love and companionship of my dogs, who put a smile on my face every day, even when nothing else can.

I would do anything for them, and when I’ ve had to say goodbye to any of my pets, it’s broken my heart. But do you ever wonder what a dog who loses its owner thinks?

Here’s a recent story reported by the BBC News about a dog in Japan who is holding vigil at his owner’s grave:

This is reminiscent of Hawkeye, the dog who laid by the casket during the funeral for his master, Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson who was killed in a horrible combat helicopter crash in Afghanistan this summer:

I think all dog owners are–or should be–thankful for the love they give us, even after we are gone.
