You won’t see a story like this again for a long time.
Not only are dogs man’s best friend, but it has been said that dogs are also our link to paradise. If you want to know true love, true friendship and true happiness, then you need to know a dog. This story of a dog named Mason shows you why both of those things are true.
You may want to prepare yourself, though. This is the kind of story that will leave tears streaming down your face… by the second to last photo, you’ll have a knot in your throat.
This is Steve Mason, the most incredible dog I have ever met and my best friend of the past 16 years. And this is the story of how he died saving my life one last time.
Steve Mason, “Mason” to his friends was a Husky, Lab, Rottweiler mutt with insanely fluffy ears and markings on his face that made it look like he was always wearing Harry Potter specs. I picked him out of a litter of puppies because while all the others yipped and squealed and played, he was the only one to stop and snuffle the flowers.
He always had this way of perking up his ears that could spur me to keep going, either to the top of a ridge line or out of what ever ridiculous angst I found myself muddled in.
He was obsessed with shortening sticks and tearing up any cardboard he could find. He was extremely meticulous and many a vacuum clear died trying to tidy up his messes.
Mason was a best friend and rock steady companion for my older brother and a traveling companion like no other. And every time he saw my brother, even if five years had gone by, he’d still try and jump in his arms like a puppy.
