My dog Dampi was one of the most loyal companions I have ever had. In a way, we had something in common because he was usually kind of an ass to common strangers but very loving and very loyal to me and the persons he knew.
I’ve recently gotten 2 new puppies from my sister’s dog and each day has gotten doubly interesting ever since. When they were first brought here, Jumbo (so named because he was larger) and Kimbot (because she reminded me of my niece Kim who eats and plays just as much) were naturally apprehensive about their new surroundings. Kimbot was the first to adapt to the new surroundings. She was already running around and exploring the yard after a few hours. Jumbo would just curl up into a corner and wouldn’t let anyone touch him.
