Appreciates glimpse into beloved pet’s final days

To the editor:

Is there anything harder than to find words to describe the loss of a beloved pet? I am grateful that Marietta Pritchard found such tender words to describe losing her dog Kirby. There is so much to be remembered and grieved when our pets die, yet we, too, often hesitate to tell the love stories we are left with. The story of Kirby’s last months of life made me smile and blink back tears. How wonderful to have such sweet memories of Kirby’s “doggy hospice,” and lucky for the rest of us to have the little glimpses of this devoted family and their beloved pet.
