Well....damn...the time came. I had to put my 14 year old lab down yesterday. One of the hardest moments in my long life so far. That old feller and I went down a lot of roads and trails together.
I guess the bottom line is, even as an old guy, one thing is true....if you can't shed a tear over the loss of your dog....you never deserved to have him in the first place.
Adios' Mozart. You were a damn good friend.
