I received several emails about my last story posted here…
Some offered condolences which I greatly appreciated
A few called me a crazy old “dog man”
While others questioned my love and devotion to an animal
I could easily respond to the later questions with…
A dog has never stolen my money or my credit card while I was deployed overseas
I might even add, that a dog has never lied to me or taken advantage of me
Although those are honest answers to the question poised, it’s not entirely accurate
You see my love for our four legged brethren goes back to the first job I ever had and coincidently the only job I have been fired from.
It’s hard to believe but that was fifty years ago….
