A dog is your best friend
I grew up with dogs, labs and golden retrievers. My love affair with dogs started at birth, as I was born in October 1977 and my family purchased a beautiful Labrador Retriever puppy in September a month before I was born, named Joshua. Joshua was the smartest of animals, known best for his ability to sneak out of every door and unlatch every fence gate to run wild in various neighborhoods. He was my protector, and my best friend.
