This might go under books or current reading, but it's a very short book, only 10 pages long, written on December 17, 1940, obviously out of grief for a recently deceased canine friend named "Blemie" (short for "Emblem"). I purchased a miniature copy of it to stuff in my wife's Christmas stocking. For all who have ever loved a dog, I'll give you just the last paragraph of Blemie's testament:
Blemie wrote: One last word of farewell, Dear Master and Mistress. Whenever you visit my grave, say to yourselves with regret but also with happiness in your hearts at the remembrance of my long happy life with you: "Here lies one who loved us and whom we loved." No matter how deep my sleep I shall hear you, and not all the power of death can keep my spirit from wagging a grateful tail.
I don't know anything about quantum mechanics, but I know what I like.
