A much-loved member of the family is gone. Justin's dog Ali Ali, after a long and silly life, is just a memory now.
He was a dog of many names: Ali Ali Royale with Cheese, Ali UpOnStuff, Trouble Monkey from the Planet Bonkers, Uncle Monkey . . .
Adopted as a mange-infested stray, he knew at once that he'd found his people and his place. Or places. He was at home everywhere.
A good dog. A long life. A quick and merciful ending.
