We actually had the dog first, but when Gordy was born in 1956 it immediately became apparent that we really had two children. They instantly became inseparable,eventually traveling all over Canada as my work took me. Babe, an American Cocker Spaniel, was baby-sitter, watchdog and constant supervisor, as well as having the patience to be the favourite play-thing for ten inquisitive fingers.
Taken in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada, around November 1956, I think.
