This PHOTO…is… TOM ALDRICH – – he is here with his “WAR DOG SHANE” – – and …if ever I saw a PHOTO of someone…and immediately could see…that this PHOTO…tells the viewer in an instant… the whole story about the person.
If one can determine as early as possible in their LIFE…what they like…seek it in books and whatever it takes to understand…what is needed to pursue the DREAM …that they have selected, for them selves to follow on this temporary journey …to be sure that when all is said…and done…that they have accomplished that …perfect DREAM…to fulfillment!
When TOM was very young…he was always curled up with a book…evidently books had what he was looking for. He studied all about “Angel Fish” and “Betta Fish” – – had several tanks , kept records of everything they did, what they ate and the breeding …so that he would have the perfect fish to enter into contests.
The Fish were easy to start out with…but as he got older… he wanted to know all about the dogs that he wanted for his own and to train. The dogs were his LIFE…always having them and the training of dogs for others. Another thing that he studied… was Soldiers from the different periods of time. He could make them …small and miniature in size…paint them perfectly in all their specific detail and made large display boards…complete with the terrain that of the Country and Nationality and for the particular years…that they worn the uniform of the ranks for the correct position…that they were on his completed display boards to be in the perfect position … either in WAR and in PEACE time.
