Rate this:
"Dog years" is the story of Doty's life with Arden and Beau, two retrievers who would, each in his own way, leave a profound mark on him: Arden, who likes sleeping outdoors, even in the rain, who is observant and contemplative, who is friendly and eager to please; Beau, blithe, snatching the glove from his master's hand and running away with it, a mischievous gleam in his eye, always full of daring and bounding toward his next source of amusement. As his time with the dogs reaches its end, Doty must face the difficult realization that to deal with death is to accept it as the utter loss of an irreplaceable value: to grieve is to understand that, while we may carry on, while we may find new loved ones, the loss we have experience is the disappearance of a unique individual who will never return --and this tragic disruption will become a permanent part of us
