May 1st

It was a little over twelve years ago that I brought you home. You were just a tiny ball of fur, small enough to fit in one hand. I named you Akela, after the sage leader of the pack from the Rudyard Kipling story. We fast became friends, then family, and I was blessed to be able to watch you grow into becoming one hell of a dog and a wonderful friend. You really were one of a kind, Akela. The wolf in you shone through and made you truly special. I will always treasure our time together and the opportunity to be part of the pack with you.

But it is with a heavy heart that I must say that indeed, all good things must come to an end. In typical fashion, you let me know that the time had come. You were brave and tough as nails until the end and I am thankful that we were able to spend the last two weeks together saying our goodbyes. Today I had to help you move on to the next leg of your journey. I hope you’re now in a better place, free from suffering and able to meet up with the rest of the pack waiting for you in puppy heaven. I look forward to seeing you on the other side.

Farewell my faithful friend, and Godspeed.

  1. I posted this as a last bit of closure for me (and I really do appreciate your support and understanding), but feel free to use this post as a jumping off point to humble brag about your own puppies and kitties- pix welcome.

  2. Here is the kat that came with the house when I bought it 7 years ago. He was between 6 and 8 then, according to neighbors. This was after my heart attack in December, and he came in all beat to shit one morning. I though he was a goner, but I got him to the vet and she patched him up pretty well. No telling how many lives he's squandered, but this was the 3rd one since I've been his slave.

    1. Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer @NNVPLizer2019

      “The Navajo Nation is a Nation within a Nation. We appreciate President Trump for supplying our Tribal Reservation with the rapid-result Abbott Coronavirus test as this demonstrates a hand-up & not a hand-out to our Navajo Citizens,” VP Lizer.

      Well, double check those kits Mr. Lizer

  3. Today in……..uh……… antihypertensive soy peptides……besides other good soy health stuff
    [ non covid related health may be useful info to some besides me. ] You probably know soy sauce is salty as fuck, and thus a [ tasty ] danger to bp watchers. It may be not so dangerous, in that the good, fermented stuff also has Antihypertensive peptides function by blocking angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), which modulates the rennin–angiotensin system, thereby regulating blood pressure

    Maybe doesn't mean drink a quart of soy sauce everyday, but maybe not as serious a salt monster as was thought.

    1. Soy sauce and sprouts are the only acceptable forms.
      I've had HBP since I was a high school athlete. I don't even care anymore.

      1. Individual Senators will be allowed a certain amount of grandstanding bullshit bill submissions.
        It's written in the rules.

      1. flogging the xenophobia………hmmm, doesn't quite have the ring to it that most others of that type do.

    1. I think it's a lack of punctuation. In goober-speak, it's "I will give it to alla the tits."
      Which is still weird, but believable.
