Sporting Gun - - Parting Shots -

I don’t be­lieve in life af­ter death for us hu­mans, so there’s def­i­nitely no “happy ever af­ters” where dogs are con­cerned. The only “soles” they pos­sess are at all four cor­ners with a fifth tucked neatly un­der their tail at the back.

Who knows? I might be proved wrong and there might be an af­ter­life com­plete with faith­ful hounds. If this were the case it would be good to catch up with them again.

But I’m not a be­liever and I can’t see it hap­pen­ing.

What I do know is that we should en­joy every mo­ment of their time with us here be­cause once they’ve gone, they’ve gone for good. End of story.
