One week ago, my dog Marco passed away at 12 years old, and we had to say goodbye to a beloved member of our family. I went to the veterinary clinic with my parents and brother to see him one last time, but couldn’t bring myself to stay in the room when he was put down. While I was waiting outside, one of the volunteers came by and comforted me, assuring me that he had a long, happy life with us. One thing that really stood out to me was her t-shirt, which featured a woman in a black dress and La Catrina makeup. For some reason, I felt like it was a sign that Marco would be well taken care of, even though he wasn’t with us anymore.
Since today is the Day of the Dead, I thought this would be a good time to post this picture. I miss you, Marco. We’ll always love you, and you’ll always be a part of this family.
