Yesterday, I had to have my dog Sherman, my best buddy and the best dog I've ever owned put to sleep. For 10 1/2 years, he was my constant companion. Always there to make both me and my DW smile. He'd come down and lay in my office door just to be close to me. He filled our house with happiness.
Well, he developed an ear infection (as Cocker Spaniels do) and it made the leap into his bloodstream. We had the vet try everything they could to arrest it but it was to no avail. So, late yesterday, we had him put to sleep. To say both my wife and I are devastated is a significant understatement.
For those of you who don't remember me bragging on him, here's how he looked in happier days.
So, any Pixie Dust you've got to spare would certainly be appreciated. My DW and I are both crushed.
