That picture is heartbreaking.

I agree, heart wrenching and truly a testament of love...how lucky we are to share it and how deep and powerful it can be...

Aw, geez. I'd like to think my dog loves me that much but she'd probably be over trying to sneak cookies off the reception table while everyone was preoccupied with the services.

Erin said...

Mine too, Katy. Or more likely chicken sandwiches. But I'm going home right now and giving him a hug anyways.

This reminds me that while Bush was President, we weren't allowed to see photos like this. (The military caskets, not dogs...Bush was happy to use his dog for good PR.)

I can't handle this, I'm nearly breaking down in tears next to my roommate.

I've got a buddy who's an Army Ranger of doing god he only knows what,and every time I see pictures like this, it scares the shit out of me. Makes me wish I could call him, just for the banter.

This photo should be framed large in the halls of Congress.

So sad and so wrong.
