Last Minutes with ODEN from phos pictures on Vimeo.

As I have learned over the years.

Friends come and go.  
You fall in and out of love.  
Your family can be separated by distance.
But your dog will never leave your side.

No matter how many times I have viewed Last Minutes with ODEN , I weep.  I weep with love, sadness, and understanding.  I’m lucky to know the love that Jason Wood speaks of with Oden.  I’m fortunate to still have my first dog Sergeant an American Pit Bull Terrier.  As this video shows my future of one day saying goodbye to him, I can only cry.

I can’t imagine the day when I sit on the floor and he doesn’t run up to sit in my lap.  I don’t want to see his favorite bone and not have him there egging me on to chase him around the house.  I don’t want to go on a walk around my block without him pulling me to go the long way home.  I don’t want to wake up with him not laying upside down on the couch wagging his tale for a belly rub.

Sergeant has been with me for the last eight years.  He’s been my loyal companion even through times when I didn’t believe God should love me.  He never even questioned it.  I believe the Lord knows what he’s doing when an animal and human find each other.  And I can only be thankful that Sergeant was “assigned” to me.

May I always remember Oden when I treasure moments with Sergeant.
