Jesus, Nick. I'm terribly sorry to hear that. We had to put down my 17 year old cat a couple of years ago, and my dog just turned 14 last month. I know exactly how you're feeling right now. You're in my thoughts man.

No words for how bad I feel for you Nick. Lost my best friend I have ever had 7 years ago and I still think about him almost every day. I have another gorgeous long haired shepherd but he is not my wonderful Strider and I cannot think of anything in my life that hurt more than his passing including my fathers death strangely enough. A new puppy helps but can never replace. All I can say is your life would have been less wonderful without all the experiences you have had with him. Hold the memories precious! Fuck...letting go sucks:-(
Count me in. In a few days I'm going to get it all trimmed and nice looking so I don't look homeless, it will be perfectly primed for rubbing.
I can't believe it you guys, 5 days from now we'll all be at the campsite making dreams come true. Hopefully that thought is enough to counter the things that make us want to kick rocks for the next few days.
My boss essentially cancelled another employee's request for that day off so I could have it. I might not have the best job, but holy shit I love my boss. He's been going to the Gorge for years, so I think he understands the necessity of a recovery day after leaving that place. That, and/or he's well aware of how useless I would be on Wednesday anyway.
