He’s always available for a cuddle and his joyful dance for a scrumptious treat always puts a smile on my face.  He’s what I would call a “soulful” dog.  When I look into his deep, brown eyes, it’s like he can read my mind.  He’s the first one that taught me how to be a parent.  He will always be my first boy and there will always be a special place in my heart that belongs to him and only him.  We rescued him. He rescues me all the time. His most favorite thing in the world to do
