    Sad Need a hug - lost a best friend and family member today

    Got home from work a couple of hours ago and received some sad news. One of our dogs, my best buddy Grizzly, passed away today.

    Over the last few weeks he was getting in rough shape. He had a bump on his side and we thought that maybe it was a tumor. He had a biopsy done. While I was in Vancouver during the last few days for the Olympics, my sister called me and told me good news that it wasn't a tumor and that it was something else that antibiotics could clear up. Something came up last night, he got into rougher shape so My sister's boyfriend took him to the vet. Unfortunately it was too late and early this morning he passed away.

    I didn't have a chance to say goodbye, but at least a couple of nights ago when I got back from Vancouver, I gave him a good hug and he licked me on the cheek. I didn't think this was going to be our last hug. He was a great pal and my best buddy while I was going to college here in Kelowna. I'm going to miss you lots buddy bear.

    RIP Grizzly.

    PS: To help get my mind off this situation, I'll compile and post my photos of day 3 and 4 of my trip to Vancouver in my trip report thread.

    So sorry Barbossa. I lost a cat about a month ago, so I know how hard it is to lose a good friend.

    Loss of a family member anyone is always unbearably difficult.

    Rest in peace, Grizzly.

    Re: Need a hug - lost a best friend and family member today

    Thanks for your support micechatters.

    I was just thinking about life from a business sense. We're all like a promotion, we're here for a limited time only. I guess we have to take in every moment we can and experience as much as we can with all our loved ones, whether they walk on two feet or four.

    I think this situation can be best summed up by a line Sacha Baron Cohen said in Borat. Anybody remember that scene outside of Mann's Chinese theater where he starts fighting with Azamat and the guy dressed as the Grim Reaper interrupts? Borat's words were "$#%! off death!" When It comes time for me to go, I do hope these will be my last three words, and I hope the people surrounding me in my final moments get a laugh from it. Should make for a great send off.

    RIP Grizzly bear. I'll miss your bed time hug tonight.

    PS: for those that want to take a look at day 3 photos from my trip to Vancouver, I put them up here:
