Mann's Best Friend, you betcha!.
Pet owners are an interesting bunch, some should never have been one, some never intended to be one, some have them as trophies or virtue signalling toys only to dump them, but most of us simply can't live without them. In fact, the longer we have the privilege of owning a pet the more connected we become.
I was an accidental pet owner and what I write in this article will surprise those who know me, as they won't know this side of me. After nearly fifteen years of undying loyalty and unconditional love my dog deserves this tribute before and not after he passes. He doesn't have long to go.
