Anyway we are going to start WAY before any of that, with Mom's very first dog Peggy and Dad's very first dog Skipper!
This is Peggy in about 1954 we think. We know it's at Lacamas Washington. Peggy was Mom's very first dog she remembers and she loved her with her whole heart. Grandma said that Peggy taught Mom how to walk. When she was just a little bitty girl, Mom would hang on to her back and Peggy would slowly walk until Mom learned to on her own. As Mom grew up Peggy became one of her best friends, they went everywhere together and Mom told her every secret. Mom always says Peggy was the smartest dog she ever had! AND PEGGY COULD SMILE! I think I would have loved her too I forgot to add. Peggy lived to be 15 years old!
