Remember

When I started looking for a dog to adopt in 2010, I wasn't trying to find one that looked like my childhood pet, Twinkles. But Life is strange, and the wee pup a friend of mine discovered at an adoption event was so calm and adorable, she called me up immediately and said, "I found your dog!" My friend never met my previous dog, so she had no idea that Pippin looked so much like her. Twinkles was 30 pounds heavier, and her nose was loooonger, but otherwise the resemblance is remarkable. And so I remember sweet Twinkles, and hope I'm being an even better mommy to sweet Pippin.

Here's an old, scanned photo of Twinkles, taken in about 1967.

Oh she does look like her doesn't she? What a good way to be able to remember Twinkles.
I was amazed at the resemblance, once I thought about it.
What an amazing co-incidence!
It really is.
What a nice story! I'm happy to hear how you became Pip's mom (and am sorry I addressed her as "he" lately; I went by the name, I suppose. ;o)
"Pippin" certainly wouldn't immediately call to mind a girl dog! But I just knew that should be her name.
It really is amazing that they look so much alike. Two lovely doggies!
I still marvel at the resemblance.
