The two of them have been inseparable for their entire lifetime. In his younger days, Tanner could be found sleeping in Noah’s bed every night, snuggled snout to nose. As Tanner got older, the stairs to Noah’s bedroom became more difficult to climb. Arthritis and joint difficulties had crept into Tanner’s soul. Since Tanner couldn’t go upstairs, Noah was determined to sleep with his best buddy downstairs. If Tanner couldn’t sleep in Noah’s bed, then Noah would sleep in Tanner’s bed. Unconditional love in its purist form is felt in the heart forever. There will come a time in the not-so-distant-future in this little boy’s life when Tanner goes over the rainbow. Noah will always remember his first love, Tanner. If you have a special pet story, we’d love to hear it. Email it with a picture to editor@ppplv.com. 50 July/August 2017 Sgt.
