From the time I joined this forum until about 2013, I posted many photos and accounts of ants I found while hiking with my dog Fritz in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Germany, and California. People who have been reading here for a while may remember my frequent references to him, and if you search this forum for "Fritz" you will find links to a lot of pretty good ant photos. My posts slowed down in recent years largely because Fritz slowed down.
Fritz passed away yesterday at the age of 14 years and 4 months, which for a Newfoundland dog correlates to about 112 human years. He had a good long life and was a good friend and anting companion, and he will be missed.
