  • Shookie Levinson came to me when he was 7 months old. The breeder had counted him out as a possible show dog, and shoved him in a cage to be forgotten almost the moment he was born. He has issues. But I'm his "one," the person he can count on for everything. We go nearly everywhere together, and I give more than I receive from him, but it's worth it. Every single moment with him is worth it.
