The Original Black Dog

2 Jul

We’ve been moving slower than usual over here at Black Dog, and we have a pretty big reason.  On Sunday June 22nd we helped our sweet Yoda, the original Black Dog pass on at 14 years of age.  He spent his last weeks eating cheeseburgers and ice cream cones, and when he told us it was time our wonderful dog doctor helped ease him from the physical earth.

To say that this loss has hit hard would be a serious understatement.  There really are no words to describe the tremendous hole that is left in our lives.  Everyone who knew The Black Bear will agree–he was something special.

To live in this world

you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.
