Aw this makes me miss my puppies Missy and Bunny, A golden retriever and a Bassett hound. The Gambler was my beagle. Loved all three of them. :,) Hope to get a dog once I move, but for the mean time I have Miss.Tuffsey, the worst cat in the wrold.
Lol. I mysteriously developed a cat allergy when I was 12...Awwww. Intensely loved & miss my dogs too, Moses (beagle also) & Jet (border collie). Was always some kind of hilarity going on with those 2. I can just imagine the same with your crew. :-)
