It would never even occur to me to write a will for my dog, but this is truly a sweet sentiment.
Before humans die, they write their Last Will & Testament, giving their home and all they have to those they leave behind. If I could do the same, this is what I’d ask…
To a poor and lonely stray I’d give:
My happy home
My bowl and cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys.
The lap, which I loved so much.
The hand that stroked my fur and the sweet voice which spoke my name.
I’d will to the sad, scared shelter dog the place I had in my human’s loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.
So when I die, please do not say, “I will never have a pet again, for the loss and pain is more than I can stand.”
Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose life has held no joy or hope and give MY place to him.
This is the only thing I can give…the love I left behind.

Good day, and good dog!
