Saddest post I've written

We had to put Chuck down today.  I am feeling rather desolate.  I never dreamed how much having a dog would enrich our lives, nor how sad I'd be when he goes.  It has been in many ways a gigantic hassle having a dog with our lifestyle and it has been very hard to watch him decline over this blessedly short and rapid process, and it has been 100% worth every moment even when he was a goofball.  And I miss him horribly.

He was a great dog. Way more intelligent than most. On the other hand, we hope you and X can spend the summer with us now

Oh, dear. I am so very sorry. Your posts about him were always filled with humor and excitement, and a lot of understanding of his unique personality. He had a great life with you.

I will miss him, too, from afar.
