My 16 year old chow mutt Mercer died this year. She was a great dog—fierce, independent, and full of spunk. I don't know how anyone gets through life without the incredible unconditional love of a dog—or how to deal with a dog's death. It's a hard lesson about loss and impermanance. I am still learning it. Good bye Mercer!
