While this may not be a recent photo (some 25 years old in truth) it is from about the time that we had our first dog, a Yorkshire terrier named Sadie. Sadie lived to be over 14 years old, seeing me through school and university, and acting as a warm mop of fur to come home to.

Since Sadie passed away I have also owned another, larger, dog named Ravage. Ravage was a Staffordshire bull terrier and Labrador cross, and was one of the most friendly (if ill disciplined) dogs you could ever hope to meet.
