This is the podcast episode I never wanted to have to do.  My Co-Host and dear child Rodney the Bulldog suddenly passed away on March 1, 2022 at 12 years old.  Rodney lived a long and amazing life!  He lived the dream with me.  He was a larger than life personality and all I could ask for in a bulldog, friend and child.  This episode is dedicated to Rodney and I reflect on a few of the many great times that he and I shared together.  Long live Rodney the Bulldog!
