Sometimes the grapevine is a problem. Remember how long we spent redirecting the rumor that Bu was dead? Years after Emily died people still ask me where my other dog is. There's only so much fun I can get out of telling them she's in the living room and she never barks like Eddie does.

Other times it's a blessing. Yesterday Viggo was hit and killed by a car near his country house. One email with a request not to make the humans talk about it and we can use the grapevine to make sure they don't have to.

It goes without saying that every pet and person you know should get treats and love. (But I said it anyway.)

*This is the last photo I took of him. I'm really glad I happened to swing by the stoop that day.

    When I first saw the picture, I thought, "gosh, he's getting big." Then I read the post. My sympathy and condolences to Viggo's people. I used to own a Malinois, and they are very special dogs.

  2. Devastated. So sorry.

  3. God Dammit. Treats for everyone.

  4. oh god. that hits like a 2x4 to the heart. :(
