Nanook and Grace

The furry members of our families don't live as long as we do, and our human hearts ache when they go. Their lifetime with us is so filled with unconditional love and pure, primal joy, that the ache we feel when they go is worth it. Our ability to care for an animal, and to treasure their companionship prolongs our own lives in return.
