Otis Redding RIP (a very personal post)
He was a great dog. He had a good life.
“May the Four Winds blow him safely home.”

Yesterday, Thursday, December 18th, 2014, we bid a final farewell to our good “Old Boy”.
The hardest part of owning a dog (or any pet) is knowing that you will outlive it (barring unforeseen circumstances). Our dogs are members of the family (like children) and it is a terrible loss when they die. I loved my good boy Otis.
Otis was the leader of our little dog pack, up until last weekend, when the “Big Boy” challenged him and took the dominant position away. He was old, even in dog years, and his health was failing. He was suffering from painful arthritis and other problems for the last year. It wasn’t unexpected that his time would come, but it was still a difficult decision.
He went peacefully in the evening. Our wonderful veterinarian came to the house with her assistant, put him to sleep, and then they took him away.
It’s been a very sad week here. Thank you for your condolences and sympathy!
