Things 06-23-2016 Giving Me an Earful

I first met my dog when he was just a pup. A runt at that. While the rest of his brothers and sisters ran all around the yard, only he followed me around with little legs and sad eyes. I took him home. It was much the same that Saturday morning when I met this fellow. It …
