Ping, Willie Nelson & Apple

A Motley Crew

More: I couldn’t pick just one of my dogs. People have looked at this picture and ask how I got them to pose so perfectly...I used food. Apple is the troublemaker, Willie Nelson is a sweet, smart, and kind boy; Ping is just Ping. The day I rescued him it was snowing, frigid, and he had been locked out in the back yard with no shelter. He was only 4 months old. I climbed their fence to bring him a blanket and then knocked on their front door to ask if I could buy him.
