Sugar and Vixen

When I think of beauty, and when I think of the history of our great nation, these dogs are what I see in my mind’s eye.  My father and my grandfathers shed blood in this nation’s wars so I could pursue liberty and happiness.  As did my own wife, who along with my father are both disabled veterans.  To me, liberty and happiness are represented by Old-fashioned Black and Tan English Shepherds.  The long-hunters, frontiersman and kaintucks brought these dogs with them as they settled across the Ohio Valley and points south. Defenders of life and homestead.

God Bless America.
