Hi SCARS, Four years ago I went to meet my possible pet. Foreman was a nine-pound bundle of fur living with his five littermates. They all looked alike.
Well now he is my “panini dog.”  Short and long. His mom was a dachshund and the dad a golden retriever.
He is 50 pounds, a lap dog, the official greeter at the dog park.  There is not a person or dog he doesn’t say hello to.  To him the official sign of treats is hands in your pocket and he remembers. He has brought joy and love into my life.
Occasionally, we meet his litter mate Oliver at the park. Oliver is lighter, taller, and short-haired but the same coloring. They recognize each other.
