She's my loyal working/playing/living partner. No matter what I'm doing, she's nearby. If I need to cuss due to failure, she listens. If I get to sing, laugh, and dance due to success, she joins me. Born on April 24th, two years ago, I hope she stays with me for a good long while. She DID chew a handmade wood earring as a pup. It was made from cherry burl, my most favorite wood in the world!! But, what could I say...at least she didn't swallow it :) It's the only time she's ever chewed on a Hendywood piece.
