Skipper was my very 1st dog. I got him when he was 5 wks he was a brown Doxie. I loved him we went everywhere together. He was always by my side. Excellent dog. Loved him so much I'd had him 4 yrs. So now I'm 14 yrs old. My brother n law took him and left him in a park while drunk. Never saw my dog again. I hate that man for this. I did not find out he did this till years later. I miss him still I'm 67yrs old now
