Ah, the loss of the family pet is a tough one. Sam, the most kick-ass dog ever passed away this morning. He lived a long fourteen years and brought much joy and happiness to us all. I mill miss walking you old boy. It's been a double whammy for me as last week also brought the death of my Grandfather. The man most responsible for fostering my love of reading which naturally turned into a love for writing.
When one loses their dog, for some reason Country songs seem to start playing. I guess Country music and losing your dog go hand in hand. So keeping with Tradition here's my Top Ten list to mourn your dog...
