And in loving memory of Bruce's mom, PAULINE PHELPS, an animal lover to the core who almost always had an animal in any photograph she was in, and to Carol's dad, JOHN W. BARRY,  a total animal lover who surrounded the family with all  kinds of animals on a gentlemen's farm in Deep River, CT.

 Carol's older brother John recently let us know that Dad, who had lived in Illinois, had two Great Danes (Folly & Citation) from the Evangers Kennels, and even showed a Great Dane as a puppy at a dog show in Chicago!  What a surprise to learn that - guess it is in the blood!

When circumstances made it impossible for dad to keep a dog,  Ci was placed with the Provost of Avon Old Farms School.
