The Best Dog

Griffin passed away two weeks ago, at 12 1/2 years old.  I got him from Doberman rescue in 2008, after they sprung him from the SPCA.  He was three or a little older, and someone left him in the SPCA lobby with his collar and nothing else.  Over the course of his life, he went to 20 states, saw the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, traveled over 10,000 miles on road trips and moves, hiked, rolled in animal shit, ate whatever he could get his mouth on, and was generally the best dog ever.  We had nine years and to me, it wasn’t enough.

The best of dogs.  RIP Griffin.  4/2005- 6/22/17
