Slate, the brother to our older Labradorable, Cinder, had to be put down this week. RIP Slate, and have fun eating moldy chums in doggy-heaven (after rolling in them). We’ll miss you. You were a handsome, lazy boy who was a good buddy and very sweet. I’m sad. Kipling hit the nail on the head with this. I’m really hoping that our dogs are our treasure stored up in Heaven, because otherwise we’ll break our hearts. Cinder and Sedgie, your buddy will be missed.
