We lost a good friend today...
Our beloved companion, Pippin, died early this morning. He'd been battling splenic cancer since the beginning of the year. Even in illness he was gregarious and frolicsome, so his quick decline late last night took us by surprise. I'm glad M was with him in his last moments.
I took this picture just yesterday -- him sunning himself on the dining room table. This is just one of so many treasured memories I have of him.
We'll miss you, Pip.

Gee, What a surprise! It sounds as if he was a real trooper to the end - gallant and graceful. So sorry.
