Pucky is Gone

A dog officially named Elie Cartan, but called Pucky, for short, was my constant companion for the last 8+ years. He would sit at my feet as I worked on my PC writing things for Cartan's Corner. He would go with me to the University, and patiently wait in my office until I finished classes. He had made his own bed on the lower shelf of my bookcase. He loved to ride in the car with his nose out the driver's side window. He was a two star dog in the sense that he has accompanied me to dinner in many restaurants, including those in France which have been awarded two stars in the Guide Michelin. He was smarter than any animal that I have known, and knew how to communicate with me via body language and small sounds.

It was great loss for me when he died
on December 7, 2000.
