Casper breezed into Creed’s hospital room and hopped straight into his bed hundreds of times over three years. If the usual medicine couldn’t bring Creed’s heart rate down before a surgical procedure, Casper could. If machines couldn’t bring Creed back from a coma, Casper could. And when Casper had to go to his doctor—a veterinarian—it was Creed who held his paw and told him it would be okay. The first and only time Casper didn’t jump straight into Creed’s bed was the day that Creed left this world.
