It would come as no surprise for Critter to be in another publication. After all, he already had two books written about him (copyrighted but no publisher yet).

Critter became ours, one nice day, about 13 years ago. We came home and he was sitting on our porch. For all of us, it was love at first sight.

I told the dog he was a handsome "critter". he smiled his toothy smile and moved in an old dog house we had. After that, critter never left.

We asked around and finally found his owners. We called them and told them critter had moved in. We asked if he could stay. They told us they had been looking for a home for Critter since they had too many dogs. So, Critter could stay.

Critter, my spouse and I were all pleased.

Critter and I had a special relationship from day one. I had been disabled in an accident, and he seemed to understand.
