Thanks to all that commented on yesterday's post about Punkindog and to those that sent me emails expressing condolences.
It's going to be hard being dog-less. When I was cooking my dinner last night I did my usual drill and cooked a little extra for the dog. I got up in the middle of the night and was feeling around with my feet to make sure I didn't step on him, and all day today I've been wandering over to the window to see what he was up to in the backyard.
The hardest thing though is when I'm sitting in my chair and without thinking, I reach down to scratch an ear and he's not there.
I don't miss them doggie farts, though.

Hang in there KnockleDragger....all will be well with the passing of time. Thinking of you and, while you are at it, have another beer. I raise my cocktail in salute to you!!

Figure out a way to bottle doggie farts and there's the solution to all our middle east problems.

One day at a time, it will get better.

I'll tip one or ten for Punkindog. Hugs Wirecutter.

I'm betting Punkindog is chuckling
at you up in doggie heaven... what Deb said, one day at a time.

FWIW, I lost "Max" my 130 pound German Shepherd almost two years ago and still do the 'doggie shuffle' when getting up at night trying to avoid stepping on his feet. For almost ten years he slept on a rug at the side of my bed...
