Twenty-one years ago, my husband gave me Sam, an eight-week-old schnauzer (雪纳瑞犬) , to help ease the loss of our daughter. Sam and I developed a very special bond over the next years.   

At one point, my husband and I decided to move to a new home in New Jersey. Our neighbor, whose cat had recently had kittens, asked if we would like one. We were a little apprehensive about Sam’s jealousy and how he would handle his turf(地盘)being invaded, but we decided to risk it. 

We picked a little, gray, playful ball of Fur. She raced around chasing imaginary mice and squirrels and jumped from table to chair in the blink of an eye, so we named her Lightning.   

At first, Sam and Lightning were very cautious with each other and kept their distance. But slowly, Lightning started following Sam — up the stairs, down the stairs, into the kitchen. Later, when they slept, it was always together; when they ate, it was always next to each other. When I took either one out, the other was always waiting by the door when we returned. That was the way it was for years.    

Then, without any warning, Sam was diagnosed as having a weak heart. I had no other choice but to have him put down. The pain was nothing compared with what I experienced when I had to walk into our house alone. This time, there was no Sam for Lightning to greet and no way to explain why she would never see her friend again.   

In the following days, Lightning seemed heart-broken. I could  see the disappointment in her eyes whenever anyone opened the front door, or the hope whenever she heard a dog bark. 

One day as I walked into our living room, I happened to see Lightning was lying next to the sculptured replica(复制品)of Sam that we had bought a few years ago, one arm wrapped around the statue’s neck, contentedly sleeping with her best friend.
