Full name: Charity Marie DoggyDog. The Encyclopedia Brittanica, defines Charity as follows: "in Christian thought, the highest form of love, signifying the reciprocal love between God and man that is made manifest in unselfish love of one's fellow men." (how about unselfish love of one's fellow creatures"???), We chose the name Charity because she was abandoned at our church. I thought I didn't like dogs, but my granddaughter convinced me to take her in. She has certainly proved herself to be a gift from God.
