Why Forever Young Is Truffles' Song #TBT


This is a story I wrote about once before in a sponsored blog post, but since those don't always get as much traffic we think it's a "tail" worth telling again, especially this week.

Around the middle of June back in 2015 I was lying in bed working on a blog post about the dog movie "Max" that was about to premiere. I started to watch the music video by Blake Shelton for the movie's theme song, "Forever Young". I don't know if it was the images from the movie or the song itself or the two combined, but I started crying. Not just a few tears either but outright sobbing.



Truffles ran into the bedroom, hopped on the bed, got into my lap and started rubbing against me and purring. She knew that I was terribly upset and her first instinct was to comfort me the only way she could...with her love. Little did I know a few short weeks later she would be gone. Sometimes I wonder if either she or I had a premonition of what was to come.

That moment is the reason why I titled the blog post announcing her passing "Forever Young, Precious Truffles". She was only four years old and it's the way I will always remember her...forever young.

"Forever Young" reminds me of Dusty the shelter cat. We thought she was young when adopted, but over the next seven years she never looked any older! Purrs to Truffles and Mudpie...
