Doug and dogs! This picture was taken back in the winter on one of Doug's many visits to my house. My dogs are well behaved, but they take up a lot of floor space, and I wanted him to be able to spend time with them prior to moving in so that he was comfortable with the dogs. It took him a little time to get used to the Saint Bernard--he's somewhat meticulous, and dog hair and dog slobber are not for the faint of heart! That said, Doug loves animals, and the dogs love the attention. One or the other of them is usually right near Doug, and Molly, the Saint Bernard, can often be found laying on or near Doug's feet, just like in this picture.
