This procession.
This partnership. 
This following.
This left behind. 

It speaks to our connection with animals, our need for them, that it is this photo that breaks so many of us. We think it's because we just don't know if he knows or not.
I heard that yesterday, outside the visitation, Danny was in a truck and he was howling.
And now I've heard that inside at the memorial service, he is whimpering.
Don't tell me he doesn't know.
Don't tell me he didn't witness the death of his partner.
And yet how would we explain it to him when we can barely comprehend it ourselves?
