I’m Here For You

I’m Here For You

Dear Man,

I know you are sad right now. I know you lost one of your pack, two even. I can hear it in your voice, I hear you on the phone with others in our pack. I see the way you walk around the house, I see you grabbing another beer, I feel you tossing and turning all night. But you know I’m here for you. I love waking up with you everyday. The sun still rises and we live another day although others are gone. Yesterday was tough. We just went out and sat on a rock to cry a little bit but it helped. Today we walked around and looked up at the beautiful autumn sky. Well, you did, I was busy sniffing and peeing and trying to sneak off to the back door of the restaurant until you got mad and yelled at me. Than you felt bad for being being mad but’s it’s okay cause I’m always here for you. That’s me Desert Dawg. Solid. Steady. A little bad sometimes but only a little. I love you. Always have, always will. Everyday is the best day of my life. And that’s your life too. Last summer I was hurt and you helped me and our whole pack helped and I got better and we got through it. Then this summer you got hurt, really hurt and it sucked. But I was there, every night, every day and you’re getting’ better! I helped just by bein’ me. I’m getting a little older, a little wiser maybe. I don’t hear so good anymore but I hear what I need to. I hear you snoring sometimes. It’s true, you do snore but only when you drink too much. So, don’t be sad. I guess what I mean is be sad but be strong and be the good man that I know you are. Do more good stuff. Tell people you love ‘em. Go for more walks. Don’t be bothered by all the crazy shit going on. Just be. True. Alive. Strong. Do all the good shit you’re meant to be doing.

Yours truly,
Desert Dawg

    This seemed the best advice I could offer. Thanks, Desert Dawg!

    Dawg, Thanks for letting us know.
    Man, my pack knows great loss of other humans. They cry, lay around and drink too much too. But, I’ve seen them come out from their sadness too. It’s okay to express the loss of your pack mates and it takes time. Once their spirits come by and touch you, a smile and warm heart will fill the sadness, and they will always be with you. Then we can go for a long walk and roll around.

    Wish we didn’t, but we all have to climb that sad mountain from time to time. For awhile. Only you can know how long awhile is. Right now, that knowing might be just beyond sight. It’s O.K. Keep climbing. It’ll slowly come into view. Glad you’ve got a good buddy with you on the trail.

    Sorry for his loss. May the happy memories eventually fill your your human’s heart. But you have a big job making that happen and getting your human over this hump.
