Dog Day Memories
These are my childhood dogs and friends, all long since passed. Names are clockwise starting from left: Windsor, Tyke, Hershey, and Topper. Can you guess who the king was?

What about Arthur? Wasn't he the first one? I don't think I ever realized that there had been a time when there were four at ONCE.

Arthur was hit by a car before I was born; Alex do you remember him? Then there was Heart, who didn't last too long (his era was from about the late 1970s to the very early 1980s).

Then, on Christmas of 1985, the Dog Era began. First Hershey, followed by Windsor (was that the next summer, Alex?), then Tyke following shortly after that and Topper a few years later. All four co-existed for quite a few years until Windsor died in 1996? 97?

Hmmm... the king. I think Hershey probably felt like the king, but no doubt, Windsor ruled the roost.

Hershey was mine and Mom's favorite but, Alex, I had to LOL last time I was in SL... remember those stuffed animals I got that resembled each dog? Well Bob had Windsor and Tyke on his bed, Topper in the TV room and poor Hershey had been left up in my room. Bob and I both had a good laugh over that; clearly Hersehy wasn't HIS favorite.

I remember Heart, don't remember what happened to him. Dad probably dropped him off at the side of the road somewhere.

Hershey was the alpha male, at least mostly until he started going old and senile. Funny story about the stuffed animals.

No, I remember driving over to a farm with Mom and Heart in the white Ford Escort. And, believe it or not, it wasn't a clandestine stop-n-drop either; Mom actually placed an ad for Heart and the farmer responded and wanted him, so that's where Heart went.
