“If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.” –Will Rogers

My favorite people are dogs. I have had dogs in my life since birth. In fact, my older “sister,” Taffy, was my parent’s first kid. She was part husky/part wolf found as a pup near the Alaska Pipeline area where my dad worked. I grew up with dogs. Our dogs, my aunt and uncle’s dogs, always a part of our lives and households. These were never yard dogs, or outdoor-only dogs, our dogs lived the life of luxury, and still do. Randy and I rescue dogs today. At any given time, we’ve got three in the house, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. They are my peace, my solace, and my kids. And, without them, life is too quiet.
