Yes, I Have Always Loved Dogs

Recently my Aunt was going thru a box of old photos and keepsakes and sent me a few  that I hadn't seen before. They reminded me that my love affair with dogs has been a lifelong affair. Here I think I'm about two and my fuzzy friend is Pete.
This one may have been around the same age. This is our neighbor's collie pup. It was a Christmas present for his daughter and we were keeping it till Christmas.
This was about age 3 and I have no idea who's pups these were. They weren't ours.
Then there was Blondie, my buddy.
I still had time for puppies though.
Boots was the first dog that was all mine.
Zelda was a puppy from my first litter. She was the easiest dog I've ever known.
This is my Uncle's dog Brandy. She had Lupus which caused her to lose all the black pigment in her face. She was a big goofball.
Libby was my beach dog. She judged my dates and only accepted the ones smart enough to bribe her.
 Porsche was sick when we adopted her and only lived a few days,but she made a big impression.
Bentley was my first Portie and joined Pylon in our family.

   Lucy may have been little but she ruled the house.
  Suddenly there was a houseful.
 Samba was so special that I don't have words to describe her.
Then, of course, there was Fudge. Fudge helped me fulfill a lifetime goal of putting a title on a dog.
Add Samba and Fudge together and we get the whole Portie clan.
There have been others too, Monty, Tsar, Sebastian, Sydney and Mackey. There have also been many that belonged with other people but won my heart.

So you see I have always loved dogs. And rabbits, too.

I grew up with animals, too: dogs, cats, guinea pigs, mice, rabbits, ducklings, raccoon, box turtles....a great way to grow up! Of course, I always wanted a pony.
