Response to Bertha Venation (Original post)

1. Hildegard

or Hildy to us kids - red, mini dachshund we had from the time I was in 1st grade until after I graduated high school and moved out.
A fiercer defender of me and my brothers you will never find. Hildy would launch herself with snarls and rage in between me and my step-father when he was in a beatin' mood (which was most of the time) and her barks probably earned her a few bruises and me a few less.

I cried a little when I left home because I couldn't take her with me but my mom loved that dog too and I couldn't leave my little brothers with no protection.

There will never be another Hildy.
