White Dog and family must take a long sad trip to Chicago. This morning Sue's dad passed away and we must return to Sue's birth city to attend to his burial. White Dog is excited about the journey since she has never been to Chicago, but wishes it were under happier circumstances. Both Steve and White Dog have been wonderful comfort and organizing godsends as we throw this all together in an attempt to leave early tomorrow morning. Sue's dad has been ill and inflicted with the worst maladies of old age for some time so in a way, his passing is a release, even though we cry at our loss. We will most likely be away from the blogs for the rest of the week but we know that your loving paws and hands are there in love and support.
