My Boston terrier taught me more about loving someone difficult than anyone else. She was a neglected/abused rescue whose first instinct when frightened or threatened was to bite. She was also one of the smartest dogs I've ever met, incredibly loving in spite of her history and genetics (I'm pretty sure she was from a puppy mill), playful, charming and funny as hell. It took Beaker and I years to understand her - eventually she mellowed considerably. She was a great gift and I will miss her for the rest of my life.
