Dogs are smart and oh so affectionate. Constantly putting that cold wet nose in the strangest places, to get attention. The day our neighbors brought Stanley home from the pound, our lives were never the same.
Our golden retriever Sandy had guarded the neighborhood for two years. Now her only thought was that four legged fella next door. You could tell the dogs were flirting when out in the yard. Prancing back and forth, wearing a path in the grass next to the fences.Greeting each other with woofs and howls each day.
It was that fateful spring day, the neighbors and Stanley were going out in the car. Sandy was already loaded in the Chevy and ready to catch some air, her head hanging out the window. When stopped at a red light, both dogs jumped out of the car's and made a dash for the park.
When the owners finally caught up with them. Stanley and Sandy were playing frisbee with some children. It was their first date.
