This website is dedicated to Andy

When I created this website in 2008, Andy was less than a year old. My intention was to add new content on an ongoing basis but that never materialized due to my busy schedule working for a Silicon Valley tech start up. And of course Andy preferred a game of tug over me sitting in front of my computer.  Andy was incredibly smart but it turned out that he had several health conditions that would not allow us to continue with any serious training. In the years that followed, Andy developed a passion for anything water - swimming in our pool or preferably in the ocean in Carmel-by-the-Sea. He accompanied me to the office for many years where he found an almost infinite amount of playmates that kept him entertained all day long. In Andy's final years, it became more difficult for him to walk any distance but that did not matter because he really enjoyed his doggy ride. Andy passed away on August 26, 2021 at the age of 13 years, 9 months and 20 days. I miss him a lot. >>> Here is his picture gallery.
