We Will Always Love You Finn

It is with a sad heart that I write today's post. Yesterday my family and I said goodbye to our beloved golden retriever, Finn.

We've known for some time that we were going to need to say goodbye but it doesn't make it any easier. My entire family came together - all of us from a distance - and yesterday our sweet puppy was put to sleep.

Last night, my parents went on the same walk they normally do, for the first time without Finn. They walk along a pier. When they approached the pier a dolphin crested and followed them for the entire length of the walk. Cresting every few seconds, playfully weaving along.

My mom came home crying. She said that it was beautiful to see. I thought - could it have been in the spirit of my beautiful dog? It may sound stupid to some, but part of me thinks that it was like he was saying his last goodbye.

Rest in peace Finn. We will always love you.

Aww, you poor thing. I'm sure Finn is running and playing now at Rainbow Bridge. I hope you are doing well -- I'm thinking about you!
