Yesterday we had to put Shorty down.  He was our 16 year old black lab.  He was the best dog I ever had.

We adopted Shorty from a shelter 10 years ago and he was so grateful to have a home that he just plain never did anything bad.

I miss him terribly as does my husband.  We really cannot even talk about it and haven’t told friends or neighbors, it is just too painful.

I believe I will see Shorty again in the afterlife.

I just wanted to share an unremarkable story about a very remarkable dog.
