Celebrating Bounder

Bounder didn't make it - at least not physically - with us to Buenos Aires, but his spirit lives on. We celebrated his memory today, on the date our favorite Austin yellow street dog passed away in 2008 after enriching our lives for 14 years. As a dear friend put it at the time, "it is hard to lose those trusty tail-wagging always-there friends."

We see Bounder all around us here. Lots of yellow Labs and yellow partial Labs and just plain yellow mutts that look and act like the B-dog. Right across the street from us, on the same level as our apartment, lives a Bounder look-and-act-alike whose owner we have just met. Tomorrow we have a date to take Lorenzo for a walk. Bounder lives on.
