Today was Yalu’s birthday. It was also the day President Lincoln died in 1865 and the same day the HMS Titanic sank in 1912.
She was born in 2000 and would have been fourteen today. That’s ninety-eight in dog years.
It is amazing how much happiness she brought with her.
I take a moment, looking at these pictures, and remember sitting Indian-style on the grass outside the Nashua, NH condo. My sister Lori and I had just brought her home and set her on the grass. This curious puppy came to sniff the camera. My reflection can be seen in her eyes.
The second photo was taken in Beaverton, OR when we flew across country to visit Lori. Yalu stayed on the bed thinking the other dogs in the house would not jump up there with her. They weren’t bad dogs, she was just terribly shy of other animals
Happy birthday, Yalu. You are always in my heart. .
