I gave the eulogy at John's funeral. It was my final gift to him. It was also his gift to me. What an honor to sit and ponder a life so filled with love. It came to my realization as I wrote the most meaningful speech of my life that a dog was the exact reflection of God. Just as dogs come in all colors, shapes, and sizes, God is different to each and every one of us. God loves each of us differently. All dogs are loyal, full of joy, non judging, forgiving, and your partner until the end. It's no wonder John was such a dog person. Was John's purpose on earth to show us love? Did the brother I used to debate religion with all the time have the answer all along? I believe so. We are to love one another. When we are scolded, we may wimper like a dog and cower in fear of others, and we may even fight back to protect ourselves, but in the end, we are to forgive and love. And that, my friends, is why a dog is the reflection of God.
