As It Comes to All …

A personal note of a sad nature — my wife and I have lost our fine dog, Little Paws. He passed away Tuesday, September 9th, 2014 at 11:22PM, aged fifteen years, three months, and ten days.

He was part schipperke, part sheltie. He was very loyal, very quiet, and the third member of our family.

I could devote a vast amount of space to funny stories and anecdotes illustrating what a delight he was, and what joy he brought to our lives, but instead I’ll refer you to Harlan Ellison’s heartfelt essay, “Ahbhu.” Little Paws was not Ahbhu, but Mr. Ellison’s reactions to the loss of his dog mirror those of my wife and me, so I’m content to let him speak for us.

What I will say is: Little Paws was a good friend and a dear companion, and even though we know what has happened is for the best, we both already greatly miss him.

Rest easy, “Mister Dog” —
