I am reflective today. 😔October 1st marks one year since I said goodbye to my sweet Monkey. He was such a rare soul and shared my joys, my pains and kept me laughing constantly. ❤️ I adopted Monkey from @bestfriendsanimalsociety via @laanimalservices #adoptionsaveslives 🙏 Today would have also been my Dad’s 82 birthday. I lost Pops this past April during the height of the pandemic. I still don’t believe he is gone. He lives in my heart and I pray he is in heaven today for a big birthday party in his honor. 🐶 Dad always loved animals. He and my Mom taught me that animals are part of the family. I trust Monkey is with his grandpa today. The picture of Dad and Monks was the last time they were together. I am grateful to have had so many years with both of them. . . #memories #dad #monkey #doglife #missingyou #kindness #losangeles #rescue #laanimalservices #bestfriendsanimalsociety #spiritlives #monkey #daddysgirl #agirlandherdog
