Goodonya for getting right back on the horse. There's something about all dogs especially black and white dogs. I'm with you on the missing thing.

God damned Dibs. So sorry for you.

He was one of the extra special ones for sure, felt it the moment I met him.

Hang in there man.

Kessler was a great God and it seems he got to spread his infectious love with many people.

Glad I got to spend the time I did with him.

Looking forward to meeting the new pup soon, will do my best to make it back out that way around Feb.

Thanks for sharing and reminding us of our gods companionship and what they really have to offer us.

Will pour a sip.
