So whats the story..

Some couples say that after being together for a long time, the spark dies out. All their romantic gestures are left behind and become tedious, boring circles of events. Some even fall out of love.

Then there are couples like James and Elinor Russell.

The pair have known each other almost their entire lives. Raised in neighboring towns in Georgia, they saw each other grow up.

“I’ve known her since she was in pigtails,” James Russell told ABC News.

May 20, 2015 was the couple’s 57th wedding anniversary, but, for what was apparently the first time in the past 57 years, the couple wasn’t together. Elinor was in the hospital, and Jim was home with his family. That, however, didn’t stop this dapper elderly man from pulling off the sweetest surprise for his beloved bride.

“Unannounced, James showed up to Elinor’s hospital room, wearing a tuxedo and carrying a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates.”

“The heartwarming surprise was captured by the Russells’ granddaughter, Reid, who then posted it on Twitter.”

“We genuinely think there are only two words to describe this: RELATIONSHIP. GOALS.”

I Am Your Dog

I am your dog, and I have a little something I’d like to whisper in your ear; I know that you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have children to raise. It always seems like you are running here and there, often much too fast, often never noticing the truly grand things in life.

Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See the way my dark brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly cloudy now. That comes with age. The grey hairs are beginning to ring my soft muzzle. You smile at me; I see love in your eyes. What do you see in mine? Do you see a spirit? A soul inside, who loves you as no other could in the world? A spirit that would forgive all trespasses of prior wrong doing for just a simple moment of your time?

That is all I ask; To slow down, if even for a few minutes to be with me. So many times you have been saddened by the words you read on that screen, of others of my kind, passing.Sometimes we die young and oh so quickly, sometimes so suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat. Sometimes, we age so slowly before your eyes that you may not even seem to know until the very end, when we look at you with grizzled muzzles and cataract clouded eyes. Still the love is always there, even when we must take that long sleep, to run free in a distant land.

I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you will shed the water from your eyes, that humans have when deep grief fills their souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you did not have just “One more day” with me.

Because I love you so, your sorrow touches my spirit and grieves me. We have NOW, together. So come, sit down here next to me on the floor, and look deep into my eyes. What do you see? If you look hard and deep enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart. Come to me not as “alpha” or as “trainer” or even “Mom or Dad,” come to me as a living soul and stroke my fur and let us look deep into one another’s eyes, and talk. I may tell you something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or I may tell you something profound about myself, or even life in general. You decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share such things with. Someone very different from you, and here I am.

I am a dog, but I am alive. I feel emotion, I feel physical senses, and I can revel in the differences of our spirits and souls. I do not think of you as a “Dog on two feet” — I know what you are. You are human, in all your quirkiness, and I love you still.

Now, come sit with me, on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow down if only for 15 minutes. Look deep into my eyes, and whisper to my ears.

Speak with your heart, with your joy and I will know your true self. We may not have tomorrow, and life is oh so very short.

So please… come sit with me now and let us share the precious moments we have together.

Love,
Your Dog
