We buried Russell out on the finish of the dunes, the place he at all times headed when off-leash. The digging was good, all sand, a bit damp, which helped keep away from cave-ins. I received him good and deep, properly away from any critters who would possibly dig for him and succumb to the medication that had been used to euthanize him.
I took his collar off to free him on his journey, however changed it together with his monitoring collar. I don’t know why I did this. I don’t suppose straight on a regular basis. When my mother and father died and the home we grew up in was bought, I considered calling the outdated quantity, simply on the off-chance that Mother or Dad would choose up wherever they have been on the market within the void. I by no means did. I suppose I positioned the monitoring collar on Russell for a similar cause I thought-about calling my outdated quantity: simply to see what would possibly occur.
