It’s with great sadness that I must report the death of my gorgeous and loving big black collie/retriever cross Finn.  Finn, who was originally called Pippin and was almost named Flash for the single shock of white hair under his chin, will be terribly missed by all the family; the hope is that he suffered very little in his final hours, and that he was pleasantly bewildered or confused at his end, the way he seemed to live his long happy life.

So long, and thanks for all the licks.
