I too have a very warm relationship with my four year old Westie. Her name is Phoebe Joy. I added the middle name be-cause she brings me lots of joy. I have traveled abroad many times with my friends. Since my husband passed away I have some friends that I enjoy traveling with. I liked Israel also and only spent two weeks traveling all over but would return in a heartbeat. I have two married children. Three grandchildren who have given me lots of reasons to have bragging rights. My grandchildren were born and raised in Boca and two are in college one entering Spanish River High. I hope I answered all your questions.
