Cassie, one of our better beasts. I've had several dogs and three stand out. Cassie is one of them. She was a small short-haired mongrel that we picked up from the pound. Cassie loved swimming and she was a total alpha bitch. Despite being the size of a small border collie she completely dominated any dog she crossed paths with. I always got a kick out of how she bent larger, and supposedly tougher critters, to her will. She was tough on other dogs but was a real sweetheart with people.
