While rummaging, digitally, through some old photos, I came across this one of our dog Missy. This is Missy at 2 months. She is a border collie/Aussie cattle dog mix. When Missy was first presented to us, we thought she was a male, don’t ask, so we named him “Dawg Howard”. Don promptly brought her in and gave her a bowl of milk. From that moment on, s/he was his dawg. When Don took her to the vet the next day, was he surprised to find out he did not have a son but a daughter! So, Dawg Howard quickly became “Missy Dawg Howard”! Missy spent her formative months in Don’s studio eating Purina Puppy Chow and pooping on everything—those terrible “training days”—Denzel, where were you when I needed you! Can anybody tell me why someone like Denzel Washington would star in a trashy movie like that or even better yet, why would he be given an award for it? WHY?? Taking a deep breath and moving on. . .Anyway, after a couple of months “on the paper” in Don’s Studio, Missy was ready for prime time. Missy, as pictured above, was the sweetest, cutest, big legged puppy you’ve ever seen. More to come. . .
