Today we celebrated the dogs' birthdays -- Zoey's
and her sister Ziggy's by taking Zoey for a walk,
and then letting her have a playdate with Ziggy
at Ziggy's house. Meanwhile the adults (human)
had a dinner party at our house -- very pleasant.
When we dropped Zoey off at Josephine's we
all had lunch, and I snapped this very bad photo
of a portrait I did years ago in watercolour of
Josephine and her daughter Claudia. It is
not a good likeness of either, although Claudia
is more accurate. What I did catch is the watchful
look in Josephine's eyes, and the easy intimacy
between the two, which has always been there.
I'll take a better picture of it tomorrow. Meanwhile...
Have a celebrating-Family-Day day.
P.S. It's Family Day in Ontario, which means
it was good that Zoey got to be with Ziggy.
