Seems like we haven't had a thread about our animal companions in quite a while, so I thought I'd start by introducing you to Sherlock. I have heard a man can own many dogs, but most get only one life-dog. Sherlock is my life-dog. I have never felt a bond with another animal as powerful as I feel for this guy. He had been abandoned and we got him from the pound 2 years ago now. Whoever abandoned him had no idea what a great animal they were dumping, and I am simultaneously mad as hell at them for dumping him and grateful to them because he came to me. He is so smart, and he lives to be around people. The first photo is older, before he was full grown, the other two were taken today. He's my handsome boy. I hope you will introduce us to your special pets here, too.
