1996-2011Well, it's my second post and already I'm a bearer of sad news. I learned that a friend of mine, Bobby, died yesterday. I hadn't seen him for a couple of months. Normally he lives with Denise here in Burgau but she had been in Holland for the past two months and Bobby was staying in Lagos so he wasn't around his usual hangouts. Apparently he hadn't been quite himself for the past week or so. Denise arrived home from Holland a couple of days ago and could see that something was up. She took him to the vet and found out he was really sick. It seems that he hung on until she got back from Holland and then he was okay with moving on.

I'd known him pretty much all my life. He was a great guy, kind of quiet until he really got to know you. He seemed much younger than he actually was. He loved his people, maybe even more than other dogs. Weird, I know, but it happens. It may have been because for the first 10 years of his life he didn't have a very good situation. Then when he went to live with Denise he felt like he was treated like royalty and he really loved her for that. Everyone, both people and dogs around the village will miss him. Tchao-wow my friend.
