My father kept a dog for a long time.
I thought he still had his old Shiba-ken(柴犬,
but actually he died on July 18th,
which coincidentally is the same date my mother passed away.

My father hadn't told me until yesterday.
He did not look so sad, but rather relieved.

I understand that most older people are worried about the future of their pets
as they may die earlier than their pets,
but my father's dog was around 18 years old,
so he has no regrets about his death.

My family kept many cats and dogs over the years,
I remember those pets with special fondness.
