a dear friend of mine, shawn, experienced a great loss a few months ago. i meant to write this back then when it happened. his dog was close to him and he was important to his dog. timone was insanely loyal. he was obedient. he came when you call him. he cuddled. he played one hell of a game of fetch. he'd catch anything you threw at him. literally. i never saw him not like someone. timone was hit by car and was killed. i'm sorry, shawn. i'm sorry, timone. i've been through this more times than anyone should.
