A Big Hole In Our Lives

We had to have our much-loved dog Kato put down about 3 AM this morning. Kato (named for the Green Hornet's sidekick, not OJ Simpson's deadbeat friend) was a large sable German Shepherd and was about the nicest, gentlest dog you'd ever meet. His sable coloring and 'smoky' dark face made him appear menacing to those who didn't know him, but there wasn't an ounce of meanness in him and he was everyone's friend. We were aggravatd when the kids made a house dog of that big oaf years ago, but it quickly got to the point where we wouldn't have had it any other way. It's amazing how those dogs can work their way into our lives and hearts. I guess it's thier unconditional and selfless love and devotion. His canine friend and accomplice Pepper is in a sort of daze and hasn't sorted things out yet but he knows something is very wrong. I half expect to see Kato nearly every time I turn around and look at one of his regular spots. This is gonna take some time to get over, but writing about him is a sort of cleansing thing. Thanks for listening. It helps.
