After class this afternoon I went to pick up the

boychiks from boarding, and had a very nice surprise.

The young vet on duty (he has not treated any of my

animals as yet) came out to say what nice dogs I have

 Then he continued talking about Rafe:

great temperament, good structure, no instability,

easy to get him to do things, etc.  And he really

liked your description of Rafe as a “golden in a

shepherd suit.”
