Anger Burger

Posted by Sunday on Jul 17, 2011 at 4:41 pm

This is one of the hardest things I’ve ever written.

Atmo the Amazing Suborbital Dog, Planet Eater, Prince of ‘Mos, beloved furbaby of my dad’s, has passed on.

he once watched a cooking show on PBS for 20 minutes

This dog was loved in a way that I cannot articulate right now, and perhaps not ever.  I don’t talk about him much here at Anger Burger, but  Atmo and my dad were each other’s bestest friend ever; weird, bickering, idiosyncratic and deeply loving friends.   I’m blasted dumb with shock that I’ll never see him again.

We love you, buddy Momo, for ever and ever.

    Oh, Jay. I’m so sorry. The fact that they can’t talk and their lives are so much shorter than ours belies the depth of love that can exist between us. Safe journey, funny wonderful Atmo.

    I am so, so sorry to read this. I stalked Atmo many times on your photostream. He obviously had a giant personality.

  3. Kristina says:

    I’m terribly sorry, Atmo’s family and friends.

  4. Little Big says:

    Oh no. No no no.

    I feel like I know him from Flickr.

    I’m so sorry.

    Nothing I could say could express how sad this makes me. I have been hugging Gertie too hard since I first heard Mo was sick. She’s my co-pilot and I know how adrift he must feel without his.

    All I can say is this: Jay made his life magical. I know for a fact that Atmo never doubted for even a nanosecond that he was the best loved, luckiest co-pilot in the whole fucking fleet. His existence was aces because he had such a great dad.

    High powered laser beams of love to Jay.

    Thanks to everyone for the shared heartbreak – I know my dad would be thanking you too, but he’s just not quite in that place yet where talking about it (even typing about it) is easy.

    I’m so sorry for your and your father’s loss. :(

    I know the loss of the best friend, the one who loves you unconditionally, who is your rock, your anchor, your one true love, who is the thing that makes wherever you are together home. My heart goes out to you and your dad.
