Hawk was a sweet little black Cocker Spaniel. He certainly had his
quirks, but he loved people, and he loved our family especially. We got
him when I was 8, so he was around for the majority of my memorable

eggs and, oddly enough, fruits, vegetables, and nuts. He'd do anything

Back in March or April, he began to have trouble breathing,
and got very ill. We couldn't afford the money it would take to do
