Today is the first year anniversary of Dexter’s death. I still miss him, but with a sense of gratitude for his life, rather than grieving for his death.
I went into the woods he loved and where I still felt his presence. As the memories welled up with great tenderness, Riley comforted me, licked me and then left. Tulku stayed next to me as I laid on the ground under the pine trees. In that moment I learned that the loyalty of dogs, their unconditional love is not just to their owners, but to the idea of the Anthropos. The Aeon Sophia dreams dogs into the world as an enduring reminder of Her love for us.
