    RIP Lokai

    I said goodbye to the mascot and a very good friend at 10 AM this morning. Day-to-day life had just gotten to be too much of a chore too painful for him. Our vet was very gentle and very understanding. Lokai went very peacefully, cradled in my arms. I will miss him deeply.

    Thanks to all for the kind words you have expressed and a special thanks to those who welcomed him into your homes when I made my cross-country trip five years ago.

    It always hurts to lose a friend like that. I think God gave us pets to remind us that nothing is permanent. Sorry for your loss. He had a loving home while he was here, and repaid that love with dividends.
    Cheers,

    These always hurt so much. My condolences. I sure wish I would have one go quietly in their sleep. The decision as to when is just too hard to make, when up to the owner.
