Fitz (AZ Daily Star editorial) has a heart-breaker today on the passing of his dog of 15 years. (Heed his advice: arm yourself with a truckload of tissues!)
Fitz's story resonates. Our dog Sparky is 16 (as best as we can tell). He was on the streets in Lubbock, Texas, and picked us up. (Sparky is smart - he recognized easy marks.) Sparky, aka Mr. Congeniality, has lived with us for 15 years. His age is showing. So what Fitz describes is partly here and more is coming our way.
