Pintauro - 1 - Kevin Pintauro Dr. Haunton ENG 150 April 16, 2007 “The dog’s gone, Kevin.” My Dad said right as I walked through the door coming home from school on a Friday.

For me, my first love was like a familial and an affectionate love. It is the love I feel for my pet dog, Crystal. I stood frozen on the corner, staring in to nothing and unsure of what to do with myself.
