Memory Monday, Week 145
This week I have the last few slides showing some of our pets during 1978 through 1982. Sascha, who was part Siberian husky, came home with us when she was a fluff ball of a puppy with beautiful brown eyes. She spent most of her life outdoors, in our back yard; but she happily shared the property with Hondo, one of her pups. My dad built them a huge doghouse with a raised floor, insulated walls, and aluminum roof and siding. Hondo may have been huge, but he was very timid and submissive — and terrified of having his picture taken. It was rare to get a shot of him face-on; he always turned and ran as soon as he spotted the camera!
Besides dogs, birds, and chickens, my mom at times had a (non-venomous) pet snake in the house, including gopher snakes and even a gorgeous boa constrictor. I think this one — possibly a Western Racer — may have been a rescue from the back yard. (You can click the link if you don’t mind looking at snakes!)
Next week, I’ll have some scenic shots from Tomales Bay and elsewhere along the coast in 1982.
