I think I first met Mistie about four years ago. A black Labrador retriever, she was a puppy rescued from a shelter in Tennessee about a decade ago.
Mistie and I became buddies then. About two years ago we became closer and spent more time together.
The first best thing for me about having Mistie around was the walks. It was so nice to roam the streets without women calling their children indoors and notifying local authorities. Mistie introduced me to a lot of folks.
