In May 2006 two wonderful characters came into my life. They were fun, cheerful friends who occasionally requested attention and consistently provided love, trust, protection, and foundation. Jazz and Napoleon came into my life as five- and three-pound fuzz balls and grew into a sixty- and seventy-pound security team with their own vocal vote in our familial pack. They both lived healthy long lives for their breed and even at their end they looked to us, their pack, with love. I aspire to be as loyal and fun loving as Jazz and Napoleon were.
