Spike was my very first dog. He was my
loving companion and went everywhere I went. He never won
ribbons or even set foot in a show ring but we shared a special
bond. He was a great ambassador for the breed as well. He loved
everyone, people and dogs alike, and was happiest when sitting
in a lap, anyone's lap! He spoke English too! All you had
to say was "Calzone" and he was right there waiting for some!
The smartest little dog I ever knew. But then, he never
considered himself a dog.....no no...he was definitely a human
in a dog suit! At 8 pounds, he presided over my canine household
until his death at 14 1/2 years. Even Katie respected him as
He made me laugh and sometimes made me cry. I love him and will
miss him, always.
