The cute little guest-star for these and other cards was our neighbor, and sometimes house guest over a period of four years while we lived in Maryland. Her family lived just across from us and we were all good friends. The three children desperately wanted a puppy and they often found reasons to come over to play with our dogs, but one child was thought to be "allergic" to dogs. Mom, Stacey, researched "allergy-proof" dogs and found that Bichons, poodles, and a few other breeds should be safe. (This is because these type of dogs have very little dander which causes allergic reactions. Frequent bathing also helps.)
