Whatever meat is on the bbq and Kirklands

Favorite Walk:
Mondo Vino, where dogs are treated like royalty amidst breakables galore.

Best Tricks:
Running leashless up to the house at the end of walk and waiting for me to catch up to deliver a Hi-5 on the porch.

Arrival Story:
Hank was one of two puppies I met for adoption. While he might not have been trying to charm me with his shy, mild-mannered, non-puppy-like behaviour, it was clear that he would be a great dog and friend. His maturity was beyond his months. He was no show dog, but his classic good looks can't be denied. I took him home as soon as I could, which turned out to be the day before Thanksgiving, 2001. No doubt what I was thankful for.......

The pound had Hank (ahem, Ace) listed as an Australian Cattle Dog mixed with a Doberman Pincher. As he got older, I thought he was more of a German Shepherd. But, internet research has me believing his main breed is Austrlian Kelpie. Not that it matters, he's 100% Canine Coolness.
