Day 117 -I’ve said a lot of goodbyes this past week, and I’ve said a lot of them over the past few years, but today I had to say the goodbye I’ve dreaded for the past ten years. My dog has been by my side almost his entire life. He’s lived in two countries, four states, and has traveled through many more. He’s ran the beaches of the Caribbean and had the world’s greatest bathroom in Central Park. We’ve done more together than a lot of people I know, so I consider us both lucky. He was loyal, sweet, sometimes frustrating, but always loving. So today I say goodbye to my dog, my camping partner, my cuddle buddy, my companion, my friend, my Samwise …my Manitou. -DECEMBER 31
