I've heard it said that dogs only live as long as it takes to teach us everything they know, then they have to go.
Torry taught many things about loyalty, friendship and love, about what's important in life, and what is not. It's important to walk in the woods on a spring day, it's important to share a sunset, it's important to snuggle on a cold winter's night. It's important to always happily greet your loved one's after being away, whether for five minutes or five days.
It's important to love.
