Saying Goodbye To Pets With A "Perfect Day"
There's a Slate story from 2011 that always gives us the feels....
It's about a man named Harry, his dog Duke, and the Perfect Day they spent together before Duke died.
"[Harry had] gotten an idea, one he thought would pay tribute to his life with Duke and give him something to feel besides sadness and loss...'Tomorrow, I'm going to give you a Perfect Day,' he said quietly to Duke as they left the vet's office. He would take the day off from work and create a sweet memory with his dog. It would be a special day, filled with all the things Duke loved most, as close to perfect as Harry could make it."
