Family Dog: Biscardi

It’s not surprising that, since they’re such integral parts of our lives, dogs are also part of our individual family histories, and the stories that come from them. When families get together for birthdays, holidays or just for fun, these stories tend to be trotted out and enjoyed once again by everyone. Here’s one we found enchanting, and we’re pleased to share it. Send us your family-dog photos and stories:
