Today, I said my final goodbye to my constant companion and closest friend for the past 13+ years.

I’d always promised that when I felt I was doing things more for me than him, it was time to make the call, and that time had come.

He came to me at just the right time for me, and left at just the right time for him, after a nice walk, a peameal bacon sandwich, a lieĀ  in the sun on the porch, and all the marrowbones he could eat.

Good-bye little guy, and thank you so much. You’ll always be with me.
