[a boy and his dog]
After years of discussion, we finally adopted a dog two months ago. His name is Prince, age 3, male, neutered, pit bull. He was adopted from Hi-Tor Animal Care Center Inc, which is the county shelter. Police found him on the street in Pearl River, NY in February and the owner could not be located. He was placed in the shelter and remained there for two months. I'm afraid he would soon have been euthanized.
He was adopted to be a companion for my son Samson (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) who, due to cerebral palsy, is quadriplegic and cannot play too much with friends. Nothing can match the devotion and loyalty of a dog.
Of course it's well known that dogs and their owners are similar. To borrow from Sarah Palin, "What's the difference between a Jewish Philosopher and a pit bull? Eyeglasses."
