A Dog's Purpose

I'm sure everyone's seen this by now but I'm posting it anyway.

A DOGS PURPOSE ACCORDING
TO A 6 YEAR OLD
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a
Irish wolfhound named Belker. The dog' s
owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa, and their little boy, Shane,
were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping
for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer.
I told the family we couldn' t do anything for Belker,
and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for
the old dog in their home.
As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they
thought it would be good for Shane to
observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane
might learn something from the experience.
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as
Baker' s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so
calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I
wondered if he understood what was going on. Within
a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.
The little boy seemed to accept Belker' s transition
without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together
for a while after Belker' s death, wondering aloud
about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than
human lives.
Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, "l
know why."
Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his
mouth next stunned me. I' d never heard a more
comforting explanation. He said, "People are born so
that they can learn how to live a good life - like loving
everybody all the time and being nice, right?"
The continued, "Well, dogs already know
how to do that, so they don' t have to stay as long."

Dammit. I'm always just one good-dog story away from crying. Dammit. This is why I don't randomly browse the feels channel.

One of my dogs who was the most loving and happy dogs I've seen in my entire life passed away early last week, we think it was because of a snake bite. Bad thing was she died alone on a cold night because we couldn't find her until she was already dead.

I know that this is supposed to be a post for feels, but I can't help but point out that that dog is not an Irish Wolfhound.

<=== That is an Irish Wolfhound.

So, I can only assume that the image used in this is some stock photo plucked from some place on the internet. That, or whoever wrote this knows **** all about dogs.

Sorry for the cynicism, no hate pls.
