But he hasn't gone anywhere. Go stand in a place you loved together, and you'll find he's there. I'm not superstitious, or religious, or particularly sappy, but I can find you any dog I've ever loved. I carry Chess, Joplin, Raleigh, Cady, Arky, Gus, and more with me. I'd give anything to bury my face in the fur of even one of those dogs, and I can't anymore, but none of them is gone, either.
