HaHaHa Matt, you had me fooled I thought you were the "Dad".
I must agree with Kristy Maree about rescue dogs, the dogs she adopted are just so
happy that they are safe and have a loving home they would just do anything
to please her. The breeds do not matter at all.
I feel it is a gratitude thing that a puppy you have raised yourself
(who has never known fear or hunger or neglect) could never fully appreciate.
