When many think of Sarah Silverman, a sometimes raunchy, sometime vulgar comedian comes to mind. Read her obituary for her recently departed dog and you may re-think that.

Silverman owned her dog Duck for 14 years. The comedian had to put Duck down earlier this week. She wrote what Duck meant to her (see the full post here).

"14 years. My longest relationship. My only experience of maternal love. My constant companion. My best friend. Duck.”

Do you feel for Silverman?
