Trooper Coats lived down the street from me in Mechanicsville when I was a youngster. I admired his beautiful dog and was saddened to hear of Baron's death. I've been a lover of dogs all my life and I appreciate the human canine bond. I am sure Trooper Coats and Baron romp together at the Rainbow Bridge.
