Ian Knox, Golden Retriever

My first introduction to Ian was my mother bringing this Frankenstein dog up the walk. He was a huge Golden Retriever who lived at a junkyard and got into a fight with a Doberman. The Doberman was dead. Doc stitched up the retriever and put drainage tubes in his neck. My brother named him Ian Knox.

You could not imagine a nicer dog than Ian. He let the cat groom him, he behaved on the leash, he licked babies faces. He had a fear of the ocean and of heavy machinery. Ian had a favorite squeaky toy--a carrot with a face.
