For Linh and her Little Man and 14 years of love, all love – this is the deal we make with our companions, right? We know that it’s inevitable, but we do it anyway …because why? Because it’s so f-cking worth it. It’s worth the look on his face in this photo. All the looks that you knew during your time together: when he was being a lazy slug, when he was happy to see you when you came home, when he was side-eying you for not patting him fast enough, when you woke up and he was there, and ready to be the best part of your day. He might not be around anymore but I promise, he’ll keep making you happy. Look ahead to that. You never, ever have to revisit what you think of Little Man. And how many people can you say that about, really?
