He and his sibling sister, Suzy, were "adopted" at 6 weeks of age. They remain inseparable, even to the point of having to accompany the other when a trip to the veterinarian is necessary.. Wonderful members of our family. My wife of 58 years and I have always had dogs since we were married in 1960. Each and every one has been our blessing. And we know that "Heaven is where you get to see all the dogs you've ever loved." Cotton and Suzy will be there."
