Conclusion of puppy photo series
I will give a shout-out to my brother today on his birthday, and express my condolences for the recent loss of their beloved dog after a long life. Their Westie lost the use of his back legs, which required my brother and his wife to carry the dog from room to room, up and down stairs, and outside to do its business, which is tough in the Minnesota snow for a dog that cannot walk. The dog's health deteriorated to the point where the humane thing to do was to put the dog to sleep, but that is a difficult decision even when it is clearly the right thing to do.
My brother is a clinical psychologist for the Veterans Administration, so he does important and worthwhile work helping veterans cope with the challenges that result from their service.
Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are posting photos of Blarney Castle, Ireland.
