It's a dogs life

When Ted the Wonder Dog passed my son in law sent a long list of dog quotes to remember Ted by. It took several months before I could read them without tearing up. Last night I read them to Charley. She liked them and asked me to share, so I will.

Yes! Everyone knows I like my little dog more than most of the people I know. I'm always saying he gives so much and asks so little.

Great quotes!

Oh Ted, I wish I'd met you earlier in life. I could have learned a lot from you.
