We Lost Our Darling Dog Today. Just A Bit Of A Vacuum Right Now.

Today my 17.5 year old Cassie hit the buffers and had to go to the great walking track in the sky.

We got her as a wonderful bright puppy of utterly indeterminate breed and she helped us raise a great daughter who loved her deeply.

Cassie's uncompromising and unconditional care and love stands in contrast to what I see around today. Pretty damn sad.

Vale Cassie - I sure won't ever forget you. Your trust when things hurt and your joy in life for most of the time is a lesson for us all.

Sincere condolences on your loss David, I am sure that Cassie was a great companion and friend.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for what you are doing for the Australasian health IT community and indeed your contribution to the health sector as a whole.

You play a vitally important role, which is highly valued by a number of people. You do so without recompense of any kind and often in the face of harsh and unjustified criticism from those "who know not what they do".

Bless you David.

Totally agree with the Tom's sentiment, David -- both on the loss of a dear pet, and in thanking you for the fabulous job you do. Yours is probably the only blog I read immediately it hits my inbox. Hope the sadness mellows quickly for you.

Totally agree with Tom's sentiment on both the loss of your dear pet -- and in thanking you for the great work you do compiling this blog. It's about the only one I read as soon as it hits my inbox. Always a good take on things, no matter how silly it seems in the media.

Hope your sadness mellows quickly and the happy memories of Cassie are many.

Those wonderful Sunday night family dinners, made all the sweeter with a lovely family, despicably tasty wine and that inimitable champion dog, will not be the same without Cass. X
