Richard helped me rescue my first, all my own, dog! A 10 pound co-dependent yorkshire terrier. We had so much LOVE for the little dog, I actually began letting Richard take him for the weekend occassionally. When that went so well,we actually began sharing custody of The Guffman, with the "pimp-daddy" walk! That is just one of very many fond memories We shared together. Thank you Richard and thank you Guffman for bringing me such pure Love and joy!
