Ricky was a dog. A good dog.
By our count, he was about 105 years old, in dog years, and he had his final adventure on Monday, April 20, 2009.
He died by impact with a car on State Highway 9, a few hundred yards from his home of the last several years.
Following are some of my favorite photos of Ricky the Dog.
Ricky was a hunter, a protector. He loved to play, to walk, to run, and to just lie down nearby. That was his trademark: he didn’t have to be in the middle of everything, but he had to be close enough to see what was going on. Just near enough to hear our voices.He was our friend and will be long remembered.
