Good Evening, Comrade Captain.

Captain, my formidable co-pilot during the fridge raids.

During my hectic yet pleasant visit to Savannah, I had received unfortunate news. Captain, a half-black-lab, half-german-shepherd mixed breed has passed away at the age of 11 from cancer. It’s a little jarring for me because all the dogs I’ve ever had lived up to be 15.

It felt a little too early to have to say bye to Captain, much less to a thing like cancer. While I’ve only had approximately 4 years of knowing Captain, he was easily one of my favorite dogs I’ve ever lived with. Captain was always cool, fashionably late, patient, shockingly intelligent and was always hungry.

Captain, you’ll always be missed. Thank you for your friendship and canine magic.
