Memories of Mistro


As soon as the dog went in his own yard, Mistro walked back home to collect his reward — lots of strokes and some dog biscuits. He had made a new friend.

Mistro lived with me in California and Maryland and ended his days several years ago in Peru at the age of 14.

I still miss him. Dogs just don’t live long enough.
