For Giacomino

Giacomino, the elder statesdog of the whippet waggle, lovingly known as Very Old Dog, left his family today. He was so beautiful. We know for sure because we sniffed him and his seven sisters and brothers when we were in Paducah on our Christmas holiday. And Mom felt his delicate head and his soft soft fur and looked into his warm, knowing eyes.
We are sending Patience and Bill and the whippet waggle all our love. Patience always admonishes our humans to hug us. And now we and our humans are reaching out to hug all of them.

Goodbye dear Very Old Dog,

Jake and Just Harry (and Joan and Jack)

Very old dog is now a young pup...we know he's jumpin' and playin' and sniffin' and free from old age and stiffness and pain...

And we know he's watchin' over us along with the rest of the dogs/kitties who have gone before us...

Run Free, Very Old Dog...

Love ya lots!
