Taking a couple days.

Sam, my dog and my friend for over 11 years, died last week after a brief illness. He had been on antibiotics, but seemed to just give up eating. I was there for him in the end, but it was rough.

I had to have him cremated, since I'm not going to be able to have him buried right away. But I think I might have to get these two pictures of him printed and framed for a little memorial for him. (That and the dog hair I'll have forever!) Sam was with me for years, longer than this blog, and was there for me when I had no one. He will be missed--I keep thinking I have to let him out, and probably will for a while.

The regular weekly strip will post Wednesday, and hopefully I'll have something else later this week.

Oh, I am so sorry. It's always so sad when one of your best friends are gone.

Again, man so, so sorry to hear. I know Sam was a big part of your world for a long time. At least you'll always have his dog hair though. I know we talked about it before, but yeah, that stuff'll outlive us all:)

Take as much time as you need to grief buddy. If you need me, you know my number.
