Kevin Smith, director of Clerks, Mallrats, and many other films shared a tribute to his dog, Mulder, earlier this year on his Facebook page, and it serves as a reminder to all dog lovers that even though our best friends may not be with us forever, the love they share is worth any pain we get from losing them.
The touching goodbye was delivered in Smith’s renowned geek fashion with references to Game of Thrones and quotes from Doctor Who. Fans familiar with those shows understood just how powerful his message was.
Shortly after the post, Smith gave an update saying that Mulder had passed. Though Smith was in pain, a pain that any dog owner who has had to say goodbye to a friend can relate to, he encouraged people to hold their dogs close. He also suggested that people who aren’t dog owners consider becoming one. In Smith’s words, “It’s all love.”
