Thank you

To everyone that sent condolences yesterday, thank you thank you thank you! You helped ease the pain by letting me know how many wonderful friends I have out there. I also realized that many of you had probably met Anubis either in a visit to Fur Central or at the 2 FC's where he made an appearance. In addition to that I had made many posts about our exploits together either chasing coyotes, dodging rattlesnakes, or simply the sad fact of not being able to go on walkies any more.

I said I was going to make a big memorial post, but I have decided to break that down into several smaller posts to commemorate his life. I have found so many wonderful pictures of him that I will need a little time to get them all scanned in.

I will just say as a prologue that I think Anubis lived a rich and happy life. I deeply regret that I was such a horrible dog owner early in his life in that I was cruel in my punishment. He endured many a beating when he was bad because I didn't know what the hell I was doing in terms of raising a dog. I have taken all that I had learned from that experience and have applied that to how I have been raising Mesa. In the year and half that we have been together, I have only given him one swat on the behind for not listening. I feel like such an "Alabama Man" for how I disciplined Anubis when he was such a destructive puppy. I hope he forgave me over the years as I tried to shower him with love and affection. In looking back at all of the places I took him and all of the adventures he went on, I can honestly say that he lived the life that most dogs could only dream about. He was such a wonderful traveling companion! He got to experience so much! I can take comfort in that fact.

So over the next few days expect 2-3 posts detailing 15 years of happiness and adventure. If you don't want to read stories about a boy and his dog, feel free to skip over it and find an interesting post about the latest exploits on Second Life. ;oP
