I was a big dog snob. I thought little dogs were cute but, they weren't REALLY dogs who could be a best friend on adventures. Then I met Petey. He was recovering from surgery and had a sparkle in his eye like he knew a secret. So, I broke my own rule and took him home. His affectionate nature was only surpassed by his intrepid approach to life. His mission in life was clear, he would be at my side where ever I went. No trail was too steep, no new people couldn't be won over, no sofa was as comfortable without him. His small stature didn't make him any less dog. it only meant he completely filled up my heart.
