A Blue Christmas Message

The blog is going dark for a few days. My sister's dog has passed after 12 1/2 years of eating, running, playing in the snow and smelling the cat's behind. Rudy was my sister's dog, but the whole family loved him. I'll miss giving him the occasional piece of bacon whenever I was visiting in the morning, and I will miss shooing him away from the cat when he was feeling a little too friendly. He lived a very long life for a dog, and was surrounded by loving faces when he went. It's comforting to think that he's not gone - he's just everywhere. Rest in peace, big dog.

I'm sorry for your loss -- especially with personality-heavy pets, like dogs and cats, loss is very difficult. He had a good, long life.
