Dexter is the service dog. He is no longer a puppy but is a highly trained animal companion that can assist his owner. I like the puppy picture, of course, but Dexter's owner, Savvy Annie, calls him "The Bug" and he is now fully grown.
Dexter is more than a pet. That is how my spouse and I feel about our pets too. They are family members. Love them with all your heart. Protect them with all your ability.
