Mama, Miss Brigid and I stayed with Silvertip until the end. Finally, I stroked his fur one last time, then Mama put a blanket over him and led me into the house. I must have been in shock, because I didn’t cry. Instead, I walked into the bathroom and threw up. Then I stood on top of the toilet seat and stared into the medicine cabinet mirror for a long time, thinking that I might see my dog on the island with Miss Brigid’s family.
