my first dog was a small black bundle of poodle.

i was 9 years old

and He was splendid!

I named him Captain Timothy Carver, and called him Tim.

we jumped rope together,

and chased waves on the beach…

and he taught me more than i could ever teach

him. and he helped me know that

Love never dies, even if people you love do.

and that is why i do what i do.
