retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The flood of email that I got on Friday in response to my OffBeat essay about the passing of our dog, Buffett, was enormously appreciated. It is clear that there are a lot of dog lovers in the MNB community … thanks for sharing your stories, memories and condolences, all of which made us feel the heartbreak just a little bit less. Or at least know that some of the ache eventually will subside.

I’ve been thinking about a line from one of Robert B. Parker’s mystery novels, in which he wrote that if there is a heaven, it will be a place “where, when you get there, all the dogs you ever loved run to greet you.”

Which strikes me as fine a definition as I can imagine.
