r.i.p. alice

Our sweet dog Alice was put to sleep today. Among other health issues, she had been really struggling to get around in recent weeks. And, while it has been a slow progression overall, she got to the point where we had to make a decision.

We were lucky to have had her in our lives for as long as we did. When we adopted her over 9 years ago, we figured she’d only be around for a few years, given her age (approximately 5-6), but boy were we wrong about that.

She was a constant companion (literally, since she followed me around wherever I went). She was our official “office dog” and was part of the company since we opened in 2008. We’ve taken her on a number of vacations. I like to think that she had a good life.

Alice was the best dog. She will be missed.
