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)
