I’m going to tell you what happened to Musa up front, so that you don’t get too attached to him like I did over the two weeks that so many of us got swept up in the search for him. I’m telling you the ending first not to make you sadder, but because I think there’s something else worth saying here, something beyond the story of the death of a lost dog.
