This August we said farewell to our four-legged constant companion, Luke.
He was in charge of entertainment, always encouraging us to play or smile at his antics. Here, he "helps" Blaine demonstrate fixed line ascension.
Luke was famous for his sharp barks that let you know who's in charge. I got to see his softer side. He would sit here under my desk peacefully, peering up at me. I think he was telepathic, telling me I needed to walk toward the treat jar.
Luke may have been the only Patterdale Terrier in Alaska, hard to say. He certainly had a one-of-a-kind personality. His passing was fairly sudden, leaving us all a bit speechless. He was a great friend to all and will be missed more than words can say.
AMS will not be long without canine companionship, it's just too quiet around here! We'll keep you posted.
