Barbara and her little dog Cricket
When my mom came to live with us, she brought several plastic storage tubs filled with slowly degrading photographs. I'm determined to scan as much of this treasure trove of family history as I can, and I'll share some of them here.
This is the only remaining picture of my mom as a little girl with her beloved dog Cricket. Unfortunately Cricket got rabies and had to be destroyed, and little Barbara had to get a series of painful shots. She told me today that she barely remembers the shots, but hasn't forgotten the pain of losing Cricket.
