Misc stories about their past etc.: Socrates was spoiled as a puppy. Dad lived downtown, so his bathroom for the first year was a sculpture park! Now the backyard is much more private, but not as fancy. Also, Socrates discovered a love for water when, on a family vacation, he jumped off the dock into a lake to rescue Dad and pull him back to shore. Ever since, we can't keep him out of water.
