Hello friends. I have some sad news... we said goodbye to our sweet Greyhound, Dylan on Monday. You've heard me talk about him since the show started. Over the last year, he's not been doing well but he's been hanging in there. I think he hung in there because he loved his mommy, his brother Taylor and me so much. I loved Dylan so much and just wanted to let the world know the amount of joy that this strange and beautiful creature brought to our lives. I love you, Dylan. I always will.
