Years ago-a quick airport run –a large crate-and a huge black dog appeared –

Cisco-black lab-made up of a bundle of energy and boundless love came into the young family of Goodsons-later- went away with a neighbor to start a new

Fast-forward some 35 years and his soul mate Blackie appeared-

Black-black-the longest tongue in dog dum- sparkly eyes- boundless energy-jump from couch to chair to floor to lap-only need is love-only gift is love back-

Blackie went away as most do because a loving family wanted no pain for him.
