One year ago today, my family said goodbye to Tenwek, our beloved mutt. We adopted him from the animal shelter when was about two years old and he lived with us for more than 13 years.
He showed me the beauty of animals and the humor found in everyday life. We spent winter Saturday mornings watching him from our kitchen window digging for moles and field mice. He never met a soul he didn’t love. He was gentle. He was a good ol’ boy and he is missed.
The dog is the most faithful of animals and would be much esteemed were it not so common. Our Lord God has made His greatest gifts the commonest.
