You Don't Even Have to Like Dogs
Poignant. From the French poindre. Meaning, "to prick,sting."
This picture/video/story will do that to you. Amazing, intriguing at first and then as your mind processes the myriad of subjects, you feel pain. It is rather like being pricked over and over by a sharp pin. Little waves of pain punctuated my thoughts as images and ideas of funeral, military, family...human and furry, loyalty, love, adoration, sacrifice, and loss filled my mind. Each one caused that painful feeling in my heart, that boulder in my throat, and my eyes stung with the tears that we were waiting to fall.
Apparently, this video and story are viral. You've probably seen it already. I'm sure everyone has written about it. I couldn't resist either. I guess sometimes we all just need to talk about it.
