Well loved and appreciated. He got his name from the book Dinotopia. Bix was the character who acted as a liaison between the shipwrecked humans and a flourishing society of dinosaurs. Our Bix was intensely social, an inspiration for the kids from art projects to Halloween costumes, a great kayaker, and a constant companion in my studio.
He was our liaison to unconditional love and nine years while long is wrenchingly short when the end comes.
