She’s gone

You remember my bestest Klingon? The one that was the first to decide that I was all right with her?

I'm not worried about this one.

I'm not worried about this one.

When I was a young pup and new in the pack she came up one day and started head-butting me all around the room. At first I wasn’t quite sure what it meant, but eventually (there were no claws involved) I figured out it was okay.

A friendly game of tug.

Well, that Klingon has gone and disappeared! I never see her around any more.

This is the last picture we have of her.

In the linen closet with her sisters.

The day she went away, No. 1 carried her into the car in her arms. They said that for her last ride, she didn’t have to be cooped up. She wouldn’t have gone anywhere anyway. She was having a lot of trouble standing up. No. 1 says that she was about a hundred and twelvity-five years old.

When they came home, No. 2 was boo-hooing, in a way that I’ve never seen him before. I didn’t really understand why he was so upset, but a dog doesn’t have to understand some things. A dog knows his humans. I gave him a kiss and he said that made it better.

It’s too bad. If you have to live with Klingons, that one was the sort you want.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I know it’s hard to lose a member of your family. I’ll be thinking of you, Willie, and the rest of your family.

Oh Willie
That is so sad. Chutney looks very lovely and I am amazed that she was so old. She was beautiful to the end.
