19th of September 2011,
It was my first up-close experience with death.
It deeply affected my family members,
Everyone were in their mood to mourn.
My charming little Dhurcy, 11 years old.
Yes, it was only a dog.
but yet tears welled in my eyes
when long-forgotten moments flashed in my head with vivid clarity
like clips being rerun from old home videos.
And that owning a dog always ended with this sadness
because dogs just don't live as long as people do.
But it brings you wonderful memorabilia.
