My first dog was a wonderful mutt dog named Sparky. And while he was the world's goofiest looking pet, Sparky was in many ways the perfect dog (sorry, Willie!).  He was super affectionate and well behaved.  He never chewed socks or towels or designer slacks.  He never got car sick, and he wouldn'...
