Briefly, homeless man Kevin McClain falls ill with lung cancer and is taken to hospital, thence to a hospice. His dog, Yurt, is taken to a shelter and rehomed. Close to death, Mr McClain asks to see his dog one last time. Yurt is brought to him, as you can see in the photo. Two days later Mr McClain died.

There’s a damp-eyed start to the week for you.


Hat-tip to the splendid Funeral Consumers Alliance for this.
