Elmer looked small, but he had a heart as big as a lion's. His
toy was a ball, which he refused to bring to you until he was good and
ready. Then he quivered with excitement until you threw it for him. He
was really a cutie! I swear he had springs built into his little paws,
because he could jump from a stand-still right up onto a high bed or
back of a sofa! Elmer died suddenly in November, 2000, of a rare
that took him quickly. He kept going until the end.
