  • Carver is the most gentle and gentlemanly canine I've ever seen. At 11, he's kind of the senior statesman in our house, who chooses the couch and cushion upon which he'll take a nap, regardless of whomever is already on the couch. His cold, wet-nosed kisses will one day be the stuff of memories and nostalgia, but for now, I love him with all my heart knows how.
