For all those who have ever owned a dog that they loved or for anyone who enjoys petting other people’s dogs, this video is for you! If you have had a faithful companion that is now departed and all you have is fond memories, this will bring back many emotions.
Perhaps this is why Mark Twain suggested that if, given a chance, he would choose a dog over a person. Loyalty is a hard commodity to earn, but this animal was dedicated to his owner. It was sad that the owner was never to return because of his untimely demise.
“The more I know about people, the better I like my dog.” – Mark Twain

Did you ever hear the story of Hachi (Hachikō)? Hachi is held up as the prime example of loyalty and the Japanese have built a statue to salute his dedication and loyalty. We saw it when we visited Tokyo!
Quoted from the text of the above video [emphasis added ]…
“When humans bring a dog into their lives, they are most often looking for a companion; what they may not realize is that they are getting a teacher as well. Every single day dogs teach us important life lessons about love, overcoming adversity and healing!”
Photographer Ben Moon and friends create a loving tribute to his dog and partner of fourteen years, Denali. If you are a dog lover or animal lover of any sort, I think you will have your heart strings tugged as you watch this beautiful video told from the dog’s point of view.
WARNING – You might need tissues!
“This Is Goodbye: In Memory of Denali”
