During the past few decades I've enjoyed the companionship of a Yorkshire Terrier – Nicholas (1981-1995), two Border Terriers – Remus and Romulus, (1995-2010), a Shepherd/Husky – Thor, (2001-2010), and now another Border Terrier – Luca, (2010-present), a cousin to Remus and Romulus.

I've loved them all deeply and received much love from them. I can't imagine a life without dogs.
