And then there was one

 A couple of years ago we found three orphaned dogs at the side of the road and decided to adopt them. One ran off not long after we had him neutered. I lost the second one today.He had been hit by a car and terribly injured. The vet said he was in a lot of pain and that he might never recover so I asked that he be put down. Its a sad thing. Bobi loved to chew on patio funiture, and sandals were never safe left outdoors in his company. A terror to cats and frogs he would try to catch the former and dig up half the garden pursuing the latter. He could always tell the sound of my bike and tended to race alongside whenever I approached the house. He would rarely bark and always let my tukangs daughter pull his ears with never a yelp nor growl. He liked to stay clean unlike my other dog who,in spite of our best efforts, remains something of a tick factory. He wasn't the smartest of dogs but he knew how to take a snack from my hand without snatching it.  I'm going to miss him. If there is such a thing as doggie afterlife I hope its filled with neckermans and sun beds - Bobi will appreciate it.

Having had several dogs myself, I sympathize with you. Yet it is as it is: requiescat in pace.

Though on the other hand, Bali. Perhaps he will reincarnate. Something with loyalty. And something foreign. Butler maybe?

I'm not sure what I'd do with a foreign butler but I appreciate the sentiment. On a more positive note the neighboring dog just had puppies so there are a lots of new faces (and barks) about.

Ya he was a good'un
