When I was little we had a part German Shepard part chocolate Labrador Retriever. She was my protector in my first years. Had several cats on the farm.
Once I moved away to attend college, had no pets. Day after graduation I got married. We relocated to Lombard, IL where we adopted 2 cats. Those cats moved all around the country with us. The first passed away back in 2006. His brother moved with us once more before he passed away in 2010.
We adopted what has to be the dumbest cat I have ever met in Dec. of 2010. He still is with us at our permanent residence in St. Paul, MN. He has earned his nickname of “Dorky Dash” repeatedly!
