This time of year always reminds Puppydoc to be thankful for all those who have come into her life, past and present…to cherish the memories of those who have left and to treasure each moment with those who are here.
Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday week.

Meet little Luis– otherwise known as Puppydoc’s partner in crime. He was a regular visitor to the hospital, as his father had tuberculosis and was undergoing a long course of treatment.
Since the hospital was a scary place for Luis, we always tried to make the visit pleasant for him. In short, what began as innocent playing quickly escalated to mischievousness as little Luis and Puppydoc discovered the treasure that was the hospital candy stash.
As you can imagine, the supply rapidly diminished into their tummies.
(But don’t worry; Puppydoc later replenished the stolen candy with a fresh stock of Dum Dums.)

…because sometimes, even during a storm,
somehow we still know that everything is going to be just fine.
• Cochabamba, Bolivia •
Because sometimes, there are simply not enough words that can be said that will convey the same amount of endearment as…a staring contest.
• Vinto, Bolivia •
After tea—and before little Esterita’s nap—she and Puppydoc would often enjoy a story together.
And for a second, they would forget their troubles…big and small…and just touch the stars…
