“Who would have ever knew
That we would ever be more than friends
We're real worldwide, breakin' all the rules
She like a song played again and again
Like somethin' off a poster
Is a dime they say
Is the gun to my holster
She's runnin' through my mind all day
Shawty's like a melody in my head
That I can't keep out
Got me singin' like
Na na na na everyday
It's like my iPod's stuck on replay”

Dori's registered name was Burrlane Ruby Slippers and she was shown in conformation off and on for several years. She had a wonderful topline and movement in the ring. Unfortunately, she didn't like standing on the table for exam and promptly sat down. In her home life, Dori loved to chase the small lizards that are prevalent in the southern US. Luckily, she never caught one but she was always on the look out. She loved going for walks and riding in her owners SUV. She looked so regal sitting in the passenger seat. She enjoyed going to the Vet. Before going to the exam room, she would walk behind the reception counter for her treat. Everyone loved her. .
A couple of months ago I donated a drawing (of the winner’s pet) to an auction for my local Cats Protection, where our furry monsters came from. Amazingly enough, our furry’s foster mum won the auction - and rather than one of her many (many!) cats she chose to have a drawing of her friend’s recently deceased dog to give her for her birthday.
So here he is - the very handsome Ossie.
