Lou's last meal was a sirloin fed to him on the day of his passing. He couldn't walk anymore, but he still could eat, that big-hearted dog, the steak flagging from his jaws like bloody treasure. The sanctity of food: eat through the pain -- that's dog law.
During his sixteen years he battled coyotes and kidnappers, charmed babies and soothed the sick and elderly. He caught rapists, foiled robberies, graced the cover of a book, taught sign language to kids, and peed on knights in shining armor. Lou's intellect and abilities won me a life changing job, which led to my sitting here now writing about him. He danced with wolves, herded sheep, charmed snakes and celebrities, won contests, climbed mountains, got kipnapped, and mastered a vocabularly bigger than that of some people I know. Lou redefined what it meant to be a great dog and a hero. Four years later I can still smell him, still hear his collar jingle, still see his movie star mug looking up at me. Lou deserved that sirloin and a thousand more. I miss him more than I can say.
I'm a reader/commuter in the DC Metro Area. My daily commute to work provides me with ample time to do what I love most: read! Whether its chick lit, literature, memoirs or other non fiction you can always find me with a book.
