Good Night, Good Dog

IMG_2688-EFFECTS

Callisto, the wonderful dog we adopted seven years ago, passed away peacefully after a short battle with disease. She leaves a dog-shaped hole in our hearts as she was very much our daughter. My wife and I wished she could have stuck around to meet the baby, but the universe has a funny way of balancing equations. One life leaves us just as another is arriving.

Good night, good dog. You were the best friend a man could have on any adventure. I miss you dearly, but I’m happy you’re not suffering anymore and you’re in that place where dogs go to chase bunnies eternally.

Vaya con Dios.
