So yesterday was a bit of a rough day as I'm dealing with some personal loss at the moment, and in the evening I received 2 somber texts about dogs that I have loved, passing away. The first was from a good friend that has a pup out of one of my males, and they told me that in a few hours their dog would be put to sleep. I won't discuss the details here, as it is a personal issue, but it was a lovely dog, and I know the owner will be going through some hard times the way I did with Baron and Rin.
The second text, which was right after the first, was a message from my Shisho saying that Kotofusa had just passed away. He was 14years 10 months old, and the saving grace in this is that Koto lived a long and distinguished life. But when it comes to our dogs, it never seems long enough, does it?
