Life Lessons

My pet dogs have taught me many things over the years. Whether mutt or purebred, rescue dog or home grown, each one had a message for me.

Some were mine for years. One lived only one day. But I learned from each and I share those life lessons.  From  this page, you can find links to each dog’s story.
