Baby Patches About Patches:  aka Patcher, aka Patchy (she thought that we were saying Apache, but she just wasn't that mean!), aka 3PO, aka Buppy, aka the Crippled Dog.  She was extremely tolerant and sensitive.  She was the most happy and "ossimistic" BC on this place!  She found her voice around mid-2013 and would greet "her people" with a demanding bark (that she learned from her mother) when they returned home.  We lost Patches to multiple rattlesnake bites on August 18, 2015 (Patches was 9 years old and Gall's littermate, sister, and buddy!).
