Dagget in San Marcos, CA 2000
Today we said goodbye to our dearest friend, Dagget. Born on a farm near Swanton, VT, Dagget was 1/2 purebred Golden Retriever, 1/4 Lab and 1/4 German Shepherd. My first dog, he was given to me as a well-intentioned gift when he was only 8 weeks old and named after the robot dogs of Battlestar Galactica. As of lately he had lost nearly 20 pounds and had been suffering from apparent kidney failure.

Dagget was a consumate outdoor dog. In his younger years he always went mountain biking with us, no matter the trail or distance. As he got older and started to slow down, he stuck to trail running and hiking and jaunts to the park or the creamie stand.
