One of the most beautiful things you will ever read
A Eulogy for Steve Mason
Steven Mason, March ??, 1998 - March 5, 2014
Here we are as pups, circa 2006.
Steve Mason, "Mason" to his friends was a Husky, Lab, Rottweiler mutt with insanely fluffy ears and markings on his face that made it look like he was always wearing Harry Potter specs. I picked him out of a litter of puppies because while all the others yipped and squealed and played, he was the only one to stop and snuffle the flowers.
He and I went on enough adventures to shame the Fellowship, and hit the top of more mountains than I can honestly remember. He always had this way of perking up his ears that could spur me to keep going, either to the top of a ridge line or out of what ever ridiculous angst I found myself muddled in.
He was obsessed with shortening sticks and tearing up any cardboard he could find. He was extremely meticulous and many a vacuum clear died trying to tidy up his messes.
I kept expecting him to die in his sleep or collapse on a hike.
Mason and I, two years back.
