Cliffie, like his dad, Herman the Hermit, loved dogs – especially big ones like his lab, Viva! The first day that 3-month old Tempo came on the scene, she started exploring the ranch house. She went into Cliffie’s closet and pulled out a sock that was in one of his shoes. Then she scampered into Cliffie’s office, dropped it at his feet, and looked up at him with her soulful eyes! Cliffie threw back his head and laughed! Then he picked Tempo up and started talking baby talk to her. From that moment on, Tempo had Cliffie in the palm of her paw! The look of love on Cliffie’s face in the above photo says it all!
