Rory 1998-2016

The Sticky Egg lost its editor and inspiration yesterday,  my cockapoo Rory.  He was 17 years old.

Quite simply,  he was the best person I’ve ever known,  and I’m so lucky to have shared his long life.

Rory never knew a stranger,  so he has many friends who mourn his passing with me. Thank you for always showing him such love and affection. He loved you all in return.

Thank you too for your support, for listening, for understanding. Rory is at peace now, and with time,  I will make peace with that.

Sit. Stay. Good boy.

Welcome to Fun Fact Friday!

I just invented it because I ran across a fun fact on Google that I wanted to share.  It is, in fact, a fun fact about Google…which makes it even more fun.

Well, at least, to me.

Anyhoo, here is your promised fun fact

Google has a pet dinosaur. His name is Stan.  He is a T-Rex.

His skeleton was unearthed near their headquarters, authenticated and later adopted by Google.  Now Stan is kept on a fairly short leash outside Building 43.

Are these Stan’s real bones or a scale model?  This fact I do not know.  But having a dinosaur as a pet?

Very cool.  And very Google.
