Ralph and I had a good deal of kinship over a dog he owned.The dog, the name escapes me, was fiercely protective of Ralph. Ralph wanted the dog to like me, but protective dog did not like my vibs and barked until we couldn't take it any longer. I believe Ralph wanted the dog to like me, for we were like brothers. But doggie thought otherwise. Ralph was a very special person, and so was his dog, a very special dog. Ralph's humor was special too. I think he was good at teasing too, for your own good.
