A Good Word for Jasper

James Lileks' dog, Jasper, has passed on at nineteen

Such a friend and such a friendship elevates us and makes us better people. 

There may be something wrong with Lileks' site this morning.  The screen got awfully bleary a couple of times. 

Being a person raised around working dogs and hunting dogs, horses and other livestock on a farm, I don't think it ever occurred to me that they were mere beasts.  I feel a kinship and a bond.  Man may rule, but we are in this together.
