Two years ago today, my family’s dog Scooby passed away. He started getting sick February 5th 2011, and after we couldn’t bring our self’s to have put down (guilt I’ll carry with me for who knows how long), he passed away on April 10th, 2011.
We would lay with him, telling him not to be scared, that we would be okay and he could come right back to us. We’d also tell him what heaven was like, and that he could see us again as soon as he went.
I heard this song about a month after he passed and, in that grief-driven state when everything reminds you of the one you lost, this song found it’s way to me. The lyrics almost perfectly describe his illness (which we never found out what it was) and the time up until he died.
So, for what ever reason, I decided to pay a small tribute to him today, whether he can hear this or not.
It’s an instrumental recording, but if you’d like, you can find the lyrics here.
Thank you for listening, and I hope you like it!
