Our family dog, Orion, had to be put down today.

He was a beautiful dog, always loving and never complained. He was so docile and would quietly follow you anywhere, just because he wanted to be at your side. I’m going to miss him terribly and I know how cliché this sounds but I don’t know if I could love another dog as much as I loved him. He’ll be in my heart forever, right along side Tibby the cat Orion and I both grew up with.

I’ve been agonizing over whether I should write this ever since we laid him to rest but I feel I should. He was a beautiful dog and I don’t ever want to forget him. This, in a sense, is my way of making sure that he will be remembered in some way by virtue of the Internet never forgetting anything.

I love you boy, rest well now.
