A Dog Called: Little Stay Awhile
And Other Tales
Judy White Ward
In 1988 we paid $40 for a little reddish brown puppy with a strange-looking ridge of hair down her backbone. She was half Labrador and half Rhodesian Ridgeback and we called her Tsin’tia which is a Comanche term meaning, roughly, Little Stay Awhile. For the next 15 years she was an integral and necessary part of our lives. We laughed and cried over her and shared our lives with her. We gave our hearts to her and she gave her whole life to us. This is her story. Turn the pages and live with her in Texas for a while. I hope you enjoy it even half as much as we enjoyed having Miss T in our lives.
Judy Ward has always loved animals but was only able to have a few pets until she became an adult. She had several pets in college and as a single working woman, but none contributed quite as much to her life as the puppy she and her husband bought in the summer of 1988. Through this book she hopes to share her love of animals and particularly Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs with others of like mind.
