Saturday will be 16 years to the day that my little furry best friend Gallagher came into my life.

Unfortunately, Gallagher passed away around noon this past Sunday, October the 9th.

To say I am heartbroken is an understatement. We have been through a lot together and he truly became a member of my family.

I remember the first moment I saw him. I remember when I brought him home. I remember him playing his version of hide and seek when he was a puppy. He has been the one constant in my life for the past 16 years and it will be strange adjusting to life without him.

He was my writing buddy. And he will be missed.

RIP Gallagher.

August 1995 to October 2011.

He was a great dog and an even better friend.
