Rest In Peace, John Henry

Well, it's a good thing Chrissy and I went to Kentucky when we did. After a long struggle with failing health, including dehydration and kidney failure, John Henry was euthanized last night at 7:00 pm. It was a unanimous decision that was made by his caretakers when he stopped responding to medical care. I was glad I got to meet the old man. He was truly a champion.

Wow, you're not kidding! You really did go visit at the right time. Isn't it nice thinking that he got a little extra love (and treats) before passing?
