Betsy Bay Uplander Tomoka's Hot Spot Sir Francis Drake, R.I.P.

Drake.  My drop-dead gorgeous English Setter and incredible grouse dog. My best friend and hunting partner for 15 years.  I held his head in my arms this morning while the vet administered that lethal injection, ending his pain and exacerbating mine.  My heart is broken and is breaking as I type. I am crying like a baby.

I took the day off and have been drinking Irish whiskey since noon.

What a cruel joke that dogs live such a short time.

Rest in peace, buddy.  I'll see you in the resurrection, God willing.
