Sad Day -- Oct 6, 2006, Friday
Today, Nico the dog (a nod to Chuck Palahniuk, but named by the shelter folk) had to go back to the Tierheim (animal shelter) because we did not think putting him in a crate most of the time is the way to house-train a dog (as suggested by the shelter people).
Nico is a wind dog, a Podenco mischling (mix); his ancestors hunted rabbits and hares with Spaniards. We wish for him a wonderful family with a big yard or a meadow to gallop and romp around in, chasing leaves and sniffing scents. We loved you, Nico. We love you still and miss you so.
