Best Friends: Howard Skibinski

Howard Skibinski, a retired printer for Monroe Graphics, would never part with his best friends, Starr, a 6-year-old dachshund, and Sophie, a 2-year-old chiweenie. (A chiweenie is a cross between a chihuahua and a dachshund.) Skibinski got Starr from a friend who was breeding dachshunds; he fell in love with her at first sight.
