…when your heart is broken. She climbs into bed and tries to push my feet off the edge of the bed. She comes up and lays next to me. Looks at me with those sad eyes… And stands outside the back door and staring at me like “Are you sure you want me to go down and potty? I’ll stay here and hold it if you don’t want me to go?”
Animals are attuned better than humans to how deep your heartbreak goes.
