My Pet Pal: Skip

I believe he can fly! Skip loves to run on the beach. He is a rescue dog from the pound when he was a year and a half old; he is 6 in this picture. Skip was surrendered to the pound with his brother, but the pair were separated after two weeks. I adopted him three more weeks later. Skip has completed two levels of AKC obedience and agility and has a certificate for Canine Good Citizen, which proves that, with patience, love, care and training, every dog is capable being great. I wonder if I should apply for his pilot’s license, or just buy him a cape?
