I am devastated, and I can't stop burying my head in my paws. My BFF Joe passed on today. Life will never be the same again. He was the king of the blogosphere, a hilarious friend and the Master of Stains. Rest in peace, my friend. I will always remember you and love you for making me laugh when I really didn't feel like it and for understanding my need for making Stains. You made me proud to Stain, and I will always treasure my Stain Award. You pulled Staining from dark back alleys into our living rooms and kitchens and curbed discrimination for Staining dogs across the world. We will continue to fight the power with our poopers. I love you man - you will be forever remembered and desperately missed.
