Here is my Mom's best buddy, Teek! We got him as an orphaned pup who had been bottle fed. His mother drowned in a swimming pool when he was very tiny. He was a present for my Dad, who had had several small strokes, and was suffering from some depression. Being a retired airline pilot, he named him TCAS (short for Terrain Collision Avoidance System, pronounced "Tee-Cass") so we called him Teek for short. He was curled up by my Dad's side constantly in his final days when he was bedridden and unresponsive, and after Dad passed, he became my Mom's shadow. He's had some allergy issues and cost Mom a bunch of vet bills and is on special hypoallergenic food, but we love him dearly anyways!
