Bernie is a silver poodle owned by the household of Bill's Mom (which consists of Bill's Mom and Bill's brothers Tom, Dale and Terry). He is curious about our ferrets when they visit. He was ambivalent about our dog Lupi, however. I think Bernie liked Lupi, but really thought he should be the dominant dog in his own house. Lupi, however, thought otherwise. A similar situation has existed with our current dog Patrick. In this case, however, I'm not sure that Bernie likes Patrick.

This image was taken Christmas '96 when Bernie was about 1 1/2 years old.
