There is a saying that we keep our old friends to remind us who we were, and that we find new friends because we see, in them, who we want to be. I believe our animals come to us in exactly the same way, when we are lost, when we are searching for our next self.
Thank you, Lea, for finding me. RIP. You’ll always be my best girl in the whole wide world.
Go swim in all the oceans, okay?
