Dog is my copilot.

In the midst of a cleaning spree, I cleared off and dusted the living room shelves where I keep several Matt mementos and photos. In a scene out of an after-school movie, Amy the Dog walked into the room, hopped on the couch, and snuggled up to Matt’s things. She laid like this–nose-to-nose with one of his planes, just staring at it–for 20 minutes.

I don’t think I need to assign any meaning to this moment; all I need to do is recognize how special it was.
