Oh! I had a St. Bernard, too, before Curtis was born. She kept knocking me down. She'd run through the house and leap onto furniture. We were afraid she would innocently hurt the baby. My ex gave her away to a friend.
Ok, that brings me to Callie. I got her when my kids were little after we had moved to Oildale. She was Emily's Nanny. Then we adopted Walter, then Thumper, then Fonzirelli and finally Chelsea. DH was wanting a different breed, so we got the beagle. Cocker Spaniels are just "my breed." I would have liked to try a Shiztu or Yorkie, but dh said those weren't dogs. LOL!
