This is a picture of my mother with our first family dog, Sodapop. Sodapop was named for the character from the movie ‘The Outsiders.’ I say movie and not book because at the time my sister had a crush on the actor Rob Lowe, who played Sodapop in the movie. Sodapop was the first in a long line of great pets our family had.
I am using this picture to honor my mother, who recently passed away. She loved her dogs like they were her own children and cherished the time she spent with them.
I realize this assignment is several weeks late but I did not realize that DearPhotograph only uploaded one photo a day and the one I put on there original has not been used.
