I Miss My Dog

This is actually my late dog's sister.
I had to put my dog down in the spring.

Though he was an otherwise healthy dog - a "mass" over his eye got got perpetually infected. His scratching at it made it progressively worse.

After shopping around and knocking the would be $1,200 operation down to about $750 - when the mass grew back after about 6 months - I realized that this was the end of our friendship together. At some point it did not make sense to keep operating on this reoccurring situation.

Now I have to jog down the country road all by myself.

This is a second dog owned by a friend of the family
