The good news is this week is my checkride for my PPL. The bad news is my Dad called me today at college and told me that my golden retriever passed away. I was very attached to that dog and I miss her greatly. I may have to move my checkride to next week so it gives me time to heal before I go back in the cockpit of an airplane. Every body say a prayer for my dog Copper and hope shes at peace. She lived a good 14 years and i'll never forget her since the day I got her.
