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.
