D is for Dogs

What else could D stand for, if not our much-loved furry friends? Meet Molly Marie, age 15. Our 4-legged lhasa apso thinks she is human. How else could she know what we're saying?

At age 15, she prefers low-key and discreet, so papa masks her age by way of a stylish "puppy cut".

If you're like me, you enjoy checking out different dog breeds. What breed best fits you or your family?

When I look at a picture of a lhasa apso, I wouldn't recognize our Molly. We never entered dog shows. Nor were we interested in maintaining floor-length hair that would have me pulling mine out. As so many breeds do, she adapted. First to farm life and then to small-town-Wisconsin.

We've owned lots of dogs. Snoopy, Pokey, Rhondie, Buddy...and the list goes on.

Very memorable was our Newfoundland, "Boggie", named (of course) after Humphrey Bogart. We have downsized from a 150-pound dog to a 16-pound lightweight. After all, she thinks she is a giant! It's all about personal preference. Time, exercise, grooming, a hair-free house,...and then portability and the cost of dog food. The biggest factor...whom will you love the most?

Whatever breed of dog you own, I hope you love him or her as much as I do mine.
