He was not mine, but he is surely the ancestor of all my dogs

Dogs are lovely creatures and all-understanding companions. There were many other dogs than the ones listed here, but time has left no pictures of them. I am accompanied by dogs since my childhood. My first dog was a wire hair fox terrier with a black heart on his left side. As this was in plain WW2, there are no pictures left. I shall place here a symbolic picture, the name was Rowdy.


Rowdy, in memoriam, where are you?
