Desmond is the youngest teammate, and is full of fun and mischief. He has a perpetually sunny outlook, and nothing short of an actual downpour will dampen his day. Even then, he’ll break out his galoshes and do hotlaps through the mud puddles.
He is my perpetual merlie shadow, always at hand willing to help, or curl up on my lap and pretend he’s still puppy-sized. He approaches life with a sense of humor; while he may be serious while he works, he keeps a little silliness on standby, ever ready to make me laugh at his clownish antics. It is impossible to be in his presence and *not* smile!
