I thought for a spell about posting this, as Kathy Griffin has been a political lightning rod for about a year now, and I’m certain even mentioning her won’t sit well with some people. But I beg you to please look at this from an apolitical standpoint. This is about the joy one dog brings into a life, and what happens when we lose someone who has become our best friend. Her tweets over the passing of Pom Pom reveal the softer side dogs bring out in us all, and I will guarantee her dog didn’t care about her politics. All he knew to his final moment was this was his Mom, this was his family, and these were the smiles he left behind.
We all make mistakes. Being in love with a dog is never one of them.
