|I Know and Old Teacher|
a little better in today's spotlight!
1. How did you and River find each other? My son and his wife asked me to take care of River for a few days, then a week, two weeks and soon, River and I became inseparable. As their lives became more involved, my son's family agreed to let me adopt River. It was a good situation for everyone. They could see River whenever they wanted and River and I could see each other all the time!
3. What' your all-time favorite dog story? It's not really a story. It's a poem by Mary Oliver, and I think she captures the essence of dog so well. Here's a few lines: "A dog comes to you and lives with you in your own house, but you do not therefore own her, as you do not own the rain, or the trees, or the laws that pertain to them. A dog can never tell you what she knows from smells of the world, but you know, watching her, that you know almost nothing."

5. In five words, tell us what you and River mean to each other: I'm River's girl. He's my boy. (sorry, that was six!)
