It's national puppy day! I wanted to find a photo of the only puppy I have ever raised, who was my beloved golden retriever, Misty...To the left is a photo of me and her at the beach/waters edge. My puppy photos of her are packed away at my moms shed. RIP Misty... However, while looking, I also found a photo of myself and Laurie Hood back from last November. This awesome chick started Alaqua Animal Refuge in Freeport, Fl where I used to volunteer. She has done more for dogs and puppies (and horses, cats, rabbits, emus, you name it!) than I ever have, or ever will. So on this national puppy day, I have to give tremendous props, so this has become a twofold puppy day photo. Thank you, Laurie, for doing what you do! .
