Annapolis grad dog&cat lover!!
I grew up as the son of a Naval Aviator, always moving from state to state, incl Hawaii and Japan, precluded me from ever owning a pet (except a parakeet)
and after the Naval Academy, continued my own military career/moving....wasn't until i was an adult, with 3 young kiddos that I got two cats and my very 1st dog(my wife thought it was for our 2 boys, lol)
My place is happy ...
