My 1st Dog

great dane and boy

Sabrina had a huge heart and I was lucky that I was her favorite, although she was very patient with others too. Here is a picture of my young cousin sitting on her!

Just looking at these photos makes me smile. My fondness for dogs started early, here I am with two Collie pups at Sky Manor Airport where we lived for a year or two after my Father graduated college. Sky Manor was owned and managed by Grandparents who also bred Collies.

Without realizing it at the time, dogs have always played a part in my well being. Sadly, Jupiter was consumed with cancer in mid 2019 and crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Our new dog, Artemis, is continuing the trend of bringing joy to people’s lives, including mine.
