Today at work I found out that Archie Hong died. Any initial anger towards my family for neglecting to tell me until this moment quickly dissolved and I had to escape to the bathroom for a good cry. Archie was a Jindo
, a Korean breed similar to an Akita or Shiba Inu, that's not very common in the States.
Archie joined the family during my freshman year of college. I loved the band Velocity Girl at the time and so I named Archie after their guitarist. Yes, Archie was a girl and she was also friendly and loving and unconditionally loyal. She perfected the high-paw and was a great mom to her pups as well. Goodbye Archie.
