Gall 1 About Gall:  aka Baby Gal, aka Killer (isn't that a combination??!!), aka R2, aka Girlfriend, aka Flash, aka Buppy.  She was Roo's #1 pup and was the smallest (and sweetest) of this whole stinkin' crew.  But don't let her size fool you - she was always investigating and when she decides that it was time to SIC something - she was the first one to know about it AND the first one there! 

Her puppy name was Flash and she certainly held her own until that durned ol' hip went out a few weeks before she died!  She tolerated people just fine and adjusted quickly to the new pupps that were brought onto the place.

Gall was a pretty deep (though moderate) thinker who spoke primarily words of observation -
read the story that started it ALL!  Gall was nearly 12 years old when we lost her to natural causes on October 4, 2017.

Just smile at someone, pat a dog, hug your spouse, help a neighbor, help a stranger, get involved in something worthwhile,
but remember, EVERY DAY, you need to share a laugh with a friend!!!  You can make a difference - START NOW!!!!!!!!
