I’ve been blessed with a love of dogs since childhood. It began with my father’s fox terrier he named “Jigger” when I was just a toddler. There have been many since.

Another fox terrier came later, then a couple of cockers, and several basset hounds after grad school. I’ve grieved for every one of them when their time was over. But the memories eventually overcame the pain of loss.
