Jenny

I'll admit it: it's not always easy to go to visit my Mom in her nursing/retirement home. I see my future, and it's not always uplifting with seeing canes, wheelchairs, diapered adults and senior confusion. However, I have recently been introduced to a very happy, very peppy, very upbeat, very active, very excited, very adorable old gal and her name is Jenny. And what does Jenny look like? It's a compliment to say she looks like a d-o-g, because that's exactly what she is! I have no idea how she is permitted to reside at this retirement facility, but she does.
Wherever Jenny goes with her master, she attracts attention and is generous with her affection.
Her kisses are freely given, she's always happy to see you, she makes you smile.
I just have to hold this dog, and here's the reason why...
...Jenny reminds me of my own girlhood little bundle of wiggles and kisses, Boots. (I dug around to find this picture taken with our miniature dachshund when I was about in the 7th grade, and also in my Charlie Brown phase with the wall posters and striped shirt.)

Thanks for writing, Katie. Now it is YOUR turn to start a blog so we can know about your life (and loves???) in school!

Deb, I was planning to leave a comment about what a great picture that is of you in blue (and it is!) but then I scrolled down and found your 7th grade photo to be even better!! You're aging beautifully, Auntie. Keep up the good work!
