I’m pleased to introduce Mr. Darcy, the babydog love of my life. We’ve been together since February 6, 2016 when he moved into my place at the ripe old age of 6 1/2-weeks-old. We’ve had our ups and downs, and even have the occasional spat, but overall we get along. While Mr. Darcy learns most of the tricks, somedays it feels as if he’s the true teacher in this relationship. Each day is an adventure.
