For the past several years, our good friend Erin has been taking photos of our young family for the holidays. Here is an outtake from this year’s session, taken earlier this evening; a shot of my dear ol’ mutt, Mister President, resting in my lap.
It’s a very timely photo because earlier today he had an MRI, which revealed that, while he does have arthritis (as I mentioned yesterday), the cause of his immediate pain and lameness is in fact cancer. It’s all over his spine, fairly advanced, and basically inoperable.
