I wish I didn't have to write this update. Ultimately, I wish I NEVER had to write this update. On May 2, Heffner passed away. This is probably as public as I will go with this. The further I get from that day, the more it seems to hurt. I cannot find the words to do justice to how much I love him or how much he meant to me. So I won't even try. Right now, I just want my dog back.
