|Winnie was adopted from the local animal shelter as a puppy, and was Tommy's dog through high school, college and afterwards. A family had found a pregnant mother dog and cared for her and her puppies until they were old enough to go to new homes. The notes they gave the shelter said the mother looked like a collie mix, but the father must have been a chow; Winnie's purple tongue was a giveaway. |
Winnie was smart and inclined to be an independent thinker, but Tommy trained her well. She was an excellent watchdog, barking only when she had something to say, and always letting us know when the mail came, or someone was at the door.
