Only those of us who are animal lovers know the joy of having a dog or cat as a pet. They give you unconditional love. Above is a photo of "Happy;"truly "man's best friend." I have had a pet dog all my life from "Sniffy," a little Fox Terrier when I was a young lad of 6 or 7. Someone stole him and I spent days walking the neighborhood calling him. Happy was a replacement for "Shadow," also a Husky, who lived to be 13 years old. Happy developed diabetes and I tried to stabilize her sugar level, but it was a lost cause. So here I am in the year 2012 and I won't have another dog. Losing them is like losing a child. I hope to be a candidate for heaven. If I am, I know I will once again unite with NELLIE, BLACKIE, SNIFFY,MACK, QUEENIE, WHISKEY, HUNDT, SNOOPY, SHADOW, AND HAPPY. There is most certainly a "Doggy Heaven;" the Lord made them as "man's best friend." They certainly were mine!
