The girlfriend lost the dog the other day. Prospects for getting him home are dim. Rex was a lovable dog, who loved me most of all. From the hysterical greeting at the door to sleeping by my side he was a great companion. As he is a purebred no doubt he is likely doing well in some other home by now. I miss the little guy and the memories we had. No matter how sick I was he never left my side. He was smart enough to know that little children fear waking up sleeping grownups, especially me.
The daughter is heartbroken.
Eventually, I will get another dog. He won't be Rex. I am thinking more in terms of a corgi.
