We rescued Dallas from the Mon County Dog pound just after we were married in 1976. He was our "first and only child" for 9 years. Our landlord was not happy, so my Mom kept him until we found a new house. While at Moms' he was shot and we brought him home to Morgantown where he spent a week in an animal hospital to recouperate. In our new location, he befriended Tiki, the neighbor dog and she had puppies. Dallas followed us to Huntington, Charleston and back to Morgantown, living in all 8 of our homes. In each place, he made friends. He was such a good dog, never walking on a lead and sticking with us to the end. Some 40 years later, Bob found this picture taken in 1984 of Dallas walking at the new WVU stadium and titled it "Dallas enters heaven". Like all our dogs, we know that's where he is.
We've been cleaning out our basement. Most of the pictures above were taken out of a worn frame and mat stained with dirt and cob webs. I was happy to rescue them and preserve the memories on this page.
