It is with great sadness that I write of the passing of my dear, sweet, loyal companion, Eli. He had been with me through thick and thin. I owed him the world. Instead, I released him from the frustration and pain associated with the paralysis of his hind end. A stoic trooper who loved to play, even at the end of his life, he will be so very sadly missed by me and the kids. As I said to him as he fell asleep in my arms, "Go to Daddy, Eli." and I can only hope he did.
I'll miss you eternally, buddy. I so hope that we will play frisbee again one day. I love you and no dog will ever be as good as you....especially not Fuckles....but he misses you too.
