Even the sky was gloomy across Comet’s last night. The new, last, day began in thick fog with mist that persisted. Right up, that is, until Comet’s final moments, when the sun came out and a breeze blew the fog away. Just a co-incidence, but nice nonetheless.
And there were the kangaroos, grazing as usual and the beach where Comet loved to run was just as glorious.
If you’ve got to go, then having nature provide a grande finale is to be recommended.
We will remember the life of the last of our gentle dogs and take comfort in the wonderful life he had and the joy he gave us.
But just right now, for one day only: desolation.
