RIP Shelby
« on: 06 Apr 2018, 01:31 »


On his Twitter Feed, Jeph yesterday announced the death of his long-time friend and muse, Shelby the Great Pyrenees dog.

As someone who was heartbroken when his childhood pet died suddenly and, as thus, know it is as great a blow as the death of any human could be, I just wanted to take this opportunity to offer Jeph my condolences.

A doggo is SO much more than just a family member. You don't choose to make your blood relatives part of your family...

Having been through the same process with my catbuddy of 17 years, I feel your pain, Jeph.
My heartfelt commiserations to you.

Poor Shebly.  I always considered her an unofficial mascot for QC, but obviously, she was much more to Jeph, as a loving companion and friend.  I'm not even a dog person, but I cried when my parents called me to come with them to the vet hospital to put their last dog down.

I think that my recently departed Polly and Shebly would get on great if they should meet in doggy heaven.  My commiserations to Jeph.
