License plates can be dog's best friend

Eleven years ago this past July, my family adopted a two-year old Dalmatian from the local animal shelter.

We had owned one once before and kept Biff for nine years until we had to give him away due to moving to a smaller place without fencing. That dog was special to my wife and myself because he was a part of our life during the BC years of early married life.

In other words, that was "Before Children" and a time when a dog could get a lot of attention from a newly married couple. When children arrived on the scene, Biff "adopted" them and was a pretty good protector whenever they played outside.
