This was the dog we had before we got Tippi .... Koki was 14 on this picture... she was resting in a dandelion field and caught her with her mouth open but I doubt she was singing to the flowers:) I did have another effort for this theme but I like this one better as it is more natural. Some consider dandelions a weed but I remember as a child at 5 years old thinking they were beautiful flowers and used to pick them in bouquets for our neighbor across the road from us and she was so sweet to give me an oatmeal cookie in exchange:) She probably threw the dandelions outside the back door after I left. I still think dandelions are beautiful even though they are considered either a pesky weed by some or a wildflower by others. They bring such nice color to spring.

Koki passed away on June 9, 2011 at 17 years old and have many good memories of her.

Thank you Richard Knight for the spotlight on 4/20/2017....Appreciated

    Thank you everyone for your kind words...Koki gave us many good years to enjoy her and even though it is heartbreaking to lose a beloved pet, I feel the only way to get over grieving for the loss is to get another dog which we eventually did with buying Tippi, and have not regretted it...She is nothing like Koki in personality or of the same breed but we love her for herself..
