We don't have a dog now. We use to raise and show St. Bernards. Also, the last dog that we were so attached too, Bootsy was stolen. I still look for him even though it has been a few years. Then Corky was a springer spaniel, she was my husbands dog. When we brought her home, Granpap Cholewinsk went to his eternal rest in a weeks time. Honestly, she had granpap's looks and expressions. We always told everyone about it, then one day my sister-in-law was up from Florida - out on the back deck - she came running in screaming - Corky looked at me with dad's eyes and expressions.
Truly an odd thing.
