I have some sad news. Clover, probably the first dog to learn polymorphism (as described in a JavaRanch campfire story), passed away yesterday. She was a happy ranch dog right up to the end, helping J.P. the farrier clean up horse hooves and stashing treats in the hay barn (in case of emergency!).

I dread the day myself. Dogs have a personality of their own and become a part of your family. Sorry to hear Clover is no more. I used to think he was just one of the pictures that you used from a picture pool for the head first series.

Are you planning on getting a puppy ? It might help lessen your pain
