This morning we got the sad news that Prince, Brett's parents' dog, had died overnight.
Prince was a wonderful companion for Nana and Papa. He was a sweet dog who could be content in his pen, but he loved getting the chance to socialize in the yard with his peoples or with his canine cousins, Frisco and Coal.
Brett really looked forward to spending time with Prince on our visits to Nana and Papa's. If we were there in the daylight, he'd often let Prince out into the yard and brush his thick coat.
Prince was docile enough to be my model last year when, to poke fun of the Aggies, he impersonated Reveille, the A&M mascot:
We are so sad for Nana and Papa, and we will miss our old friend. He was such a sweetheart, and our hearts hurt because he's no longer with us.
