This will be the last update on Barco.
My pal, Barco Rubio, dog extraordinaire, died just before midnight in Cihuatlán -- having just passed his first birthday.
The veterinarian contacted me to let me know Barco had taken a severe downturn today and that he was near death. I drove over to spend a last few moments with him tonight -- even though it was apparent he was not aware of my presence.
There are two rules about being a dog owner:
Rule #1 -- all dogs die.
Rule #2 -- dog owners cannot change Rule #1.
I will write more about him in the future. But, right now, I am going to go for a long walk, and then I am going to bed.
