I cannot believe it has been a year since this guy died. It feels like five years ago because so much has happened. But when I stop and think of him, I can still smell his fur and feel those ears. I miss him so, so much. Sometimes my computer makes this error noise, and I always say (or think) “Sorry buddy!” That noise would *always* make Merlin jump up, no matter how deep his sleep.
I recently read this book, and it made me hope beyond hope that Merlin’s soul comes back to me some day in the form of another dog. That would be such a wonderful treasure. And, by the by, I truly enjoyed that book, but the cover is horrible. Let’s be clear.
