Mortality And German Shepherd Dogs


I haven’t written lately.  Between my shoulder situation and my spinal operation, I’ve had my hands full.  Yet, these recent events have caused me to reminisce again… Jim Croce did a song, which I realize was intended as a romantic ballad.  But, … Continue reading
