Milo: A tribute

Just over 5 years ago, we lucked out with two amazing dogs: Milo and Gus.  Over the past years, we've shared many moments and adventures with them, and they have filled our lives with much laughter and happiness and our hearts with joy.

Mike and Milo - One of our early walks with him - a bit too hot and too far, but he was such a trooper.

Milo and Gus came as a well-balanced pair - Gus relying on his cuteness while lacking brain power, Milo being a bit too smart for his own good at times (always sensing when we were leaving on a trip days before it happened and then worrying whether he would go with us or not).  He was an affectionate dog, coming over to give us love on a regular basis.

And so, it was with profound sadness that we lost Milo last week.  Our life feels much emptier without our very good boy.

My words can't express all that we felt and feel about Milo, but John Muir puts it quite well:  "Any glimpse into the life of an animal quickens our own and makes it so much the larger and better in every way."

Milo - You certainly made our life better, and you will always have a place in our hearts.
