This is Mystique. Mystique is a 95-pound Bouvier des Flandres, who happens to have the sweetest disposition of any dog I have ever known. She is happily resting here in the park in central St Catharines because she has been romping with my three-year-old daughter and is taking a break. Mystique was born and raised just north of Montreal, and is bilingual, happy, and very, very bright. Mystique is helping me to get back into what I will euphemistically term "in shape."
