The Goerner's
Growing up watching Dick the cop train Sam his black German Shepard in his back yard. He would always help my brothers with their race car in my parents garage. Dick was always friendly to all of us. That dog "Sam" was amazing to bad he was gun shy. Dick always told us never to come in his yard if the dog was out and he wasn't. Dick loved to go to the the races with my brothers and watch my brother Bobby race.
