All my life safe I have been blessed with the company of loving dogs. Every one was a mixed breed, or mutt, only one was pure breed, a cocker spaniel named Brandy. She was given to me to save her from an abusive master. They say people start to look like their dogs and from the start that was true as Brandy and I shared the same hair color.
