KaiCarra reblogged this on K'Cadences: Music, Inspiration & Cool Cats and commented:

Inspirational stories do not just belong to people. It is expected that we, people are to serve one another, although it is often forgotten. Animals in the force and service animals are inspiring to me. Their love, devotion and loyalty are all-encompassing. There's nothing like it. No wonder we love them so very much and are bereft when they need to go. Maybe there's a special reward for dogs like Solo, or my Mom's service animal Urr (who went to Rainbows on April 1st). I hope so. I hope they know how incredibly special they are and how deeply they've touched lives. Thank you Sweet Solo for all you've done. Thank you Urr Minkabeh for your incredible tenacity, humor, positivity, sense of justice, courage, your knowing what to do, and above all your LOVE. We will miss you forever.
