last car ride
with a good friend-
sheds winter coat
Today is the end of an era. Our wonderful German shepherd Ivan Pavlov passed away. He had been ill for a year. Today he took his last car ride. We let him outside and a few moments later he was just sitting on the sidewalk. I carried him to the car and left for the Vet. We were stopped by a train and while waiting we petted him, listening to classical music, and told him he was a good boy. He died peacefully before the train moved on.
While we are sad we are glad too that he is no longer suffering and that he was able to die in a manner he seemed to have chosen.
