Misty is gorgeous. Look at those eyes! And the marking on her ear gives her so much character. Pam, I've always adored your poodles and am so glad I got to see a new picture of them. I never knew Pumpkin was quite that tiny. What a doll.
Lisa was my very first pet that was all my own (that I didn't pick up off the street). I named her after my imaginary friend because after I got her I didn't need my imaginary friends anymore anyway. Little did we know she was pregnant and had babies one night while I was sleeping (Blackie, Brownie, and Whitey). Unfortunately I don't have pics of the babies. I had a guinea pig leash for Lisa and loved to spend time in the yard with her. Just once we were traumatized by a dog trying to eat her. I had to hold her high above my head, screaming and crying. My mom came out to the rescue. Thankfully the dog wasn't out of control.
I still can't talk about Dessi too much or the tears will flow. I grew up with her and she was the most precious, sweet natured dog in the world. I miss her so much
