Goodbye Phil.

Phil, captured by My Dog's Territory. 

It is in a state of not-quite-acceptance that I post that my dog Phil died yesterday. It feels surreal. He was a very senior dog (how senior I will never know – although I would estimate a solid 16 and possibly beyond). He had multiple co-morbidities, and he was well compensated until yesterday when he crashed.

Somewhat poetically, the very day before, Phil became part of a First Dog on the Moon cartoon which I feel is important to share here. Its hard to write anything beyond that right now. Except to say that the void he has left is disproportionately larger than his 1.8kg form. And he was loved beyond measure.
