These Old Bones by Hahren Jezek reviews
"She still thinks he is a Good Boy. She still loves him, even though his joints ache and cause him pain. She still loves him, even though his ears do not hear like they used to, and even though he cannot run as long or as far. She still loves him, even though he is old and weary." An exploration of coping with old age and mortality from the perspective of Kael, Meran's Mabari.
