Simba never was a photogenic dog but I am doing my best to catch memorial moments on my iPhone, and this video is the best yet. I was laying down next to him, reassuring him that everything is going to be okay. Telling him that it’s okay to let go.

After I told him I would be okay, I began to cry, and that’s when he started to wipe my tears away with his head, and I was lucky enough to catch it on video.
