Well, I didn’t plan on having a dog, but this one was special.  Nobody wanted him, he was in a pound in Kansas, was adopted by a friend who couldn’t keep him, and I couldn’t let this guy go back to the pound.  He is too wonderful, I can’t describe how friendly and loving and protective he is.  No words.  He is my best friend, for life, and I feel I have been blessed.  His name is Punkin and I really don’t know how old he is.
