In Oct., 1989, Larry and Val took a daytrip to San Antonio to enjoy the parks and gardens. They also took along their new purchase from the Austin Humane Society, a miniature schnauzer/Scottish terrier mix they named Frisky Pepper Tornado Rex. The little dog had her first encounter with a horse (carrying a mounted policeman) and took all the other sights, sounds, and especially smells, in stride. Larry snapped this picture by the Japanese Tea Garden, near the zoo. Over the next fourteen years, Frisky enjoyed trips to Illinois, Colorado, Wisconsin and Florida, as well as various destinations in Texas, always leaving her mark to prove that these locales were forever after additional parcels in her vast personal territory.
