On the morning of Friday, October 21, 2016, our chocolate lab, Ted, passed away. Ted had been battling lymphoma for almost two months before taking a serious downhill turn a few days before his passing.
Ted brought joy to everyone, especially his long-time owner, my wife. In order to cope, we have been trying to find some positives, like how he ended up taking his last breath outside on our balcony, at sunrise, while overlooking the water and boats at Pirate’s Cove Marina, and that his last breath must have included the faint smell of fish, which was his favorite marina scent. Ted used to drag us over to the fish cleaning areas and take in deep breaths of the air. He loved it!
