Well done, good and faithful servant
Sad news tonight from Brigid, whose beautiful black Labrador retriever Barkley shuffled off this mortal coil today. He was more like a child to her than a pet in many ways, absolutely 'one of the family'. Miss D. and I thoroughly enjoyed visiting with him during our trips to see Brigid and other friends in that part of the world (even if he did steal the underwear out of our suitcases at every conceivable opportunity, and defy us to chase him to get it back).
Very sorry to hear of your loss, Brigid. I hope you and Barkley will be reunited one day at whatever waits for us on the other side of the river. (If so, you'll probably find he took with him one of your slippers and a couple of pieces of underwear, to have them waiting for you!)
