It was a very sad day last week when we said good-bye to our very sweet dog, Ego.
He had a long, happy life with us for almost 18 years. We miss him very much, and it is very quiet around the house. Ego was always a "mama's boy" and followed me everywhere like a little shadow. He was a sweet, and loving friend and companion. We think he has joined his brother, Id, in doggie heaven, and while Id is teaching windsurfing and other "must have balance" water sports, Ego is the swimming and diving instructor. He LOVED the pool, and just like his mom, swimming was Ego's favorite exercise. We had a lot in common: blonde, friendly, love to eat and take naps, affectionate... there were many happy years with my little buddy.
Ego's last moments were at home. He was licking my face, moments before his peaceful eternal asleep began in my arms.
