My neighbor, Henry, is a retired Air Force Colonel who loves walking his dog, Baron, with the leash in one hand and a beer in the other. I've been trying to catch a good a picture of Baron for quite a while, and finally grabbed this snap just before Christmas. Good thing I did, because Baron passed on in late January at the age of 11. Henry loved the picture, and had me make some large prints as a rememberance. His wife told me that Henry had problems walking around the neighborhood afterwards. Folks would come out to give their condolences, and Henry would come home weeping. I was surprised to get a call from Henry today, asking me to come over and bring my camera. His wife contacted the breeder who had sold them Baron, and bought Henry a puppy with the same set of genes. View attachment 5896 View attachment 5897 Baron II, as he's been named, is a sweetie. He's 3 months old, and will have the bandages removed from his clipped ears next Wednesday. I'll try to show more pictures of him as he grows.
