Pippen’s turning 4! I’m excited but scared at the same time. I don’t want him to get old. I find myself thinking about the future and what it holds for Pippen. I have to stop thinking about Pippen growing old and dog age in general because it gets really depressing. I know you’re supposed to live in the moment but my plans and goals for the future involve and require that he is there. I love my dog, I will forever be indebted to my parents, not because of the gifts they bought me growing up but because they brought Pippen into my life. Animals as a whole are beautiful creatures and we should be doing our best to make sure that we’re all accounted for on earth. I saw a Jane Goodall interview on Jimmy Fallon and they were speaking about a moment in one of her National Geographic documentaries when an ape that Goodall had saved was being released back into the wild. Just before the ape left, they tightly hugged Goodall, showing their love and appreciation for what she did. I have attached the following video below.
