I am a school teacher. I teach English.
This week my students are writing memoirs about significant happenings in their lives. This is an emotionally fraught exercise.
As a teacher, I believe in teaching by model. So I wrote my own memoir about a time when my dog ... oh, wait! I've never told that story here.
Here's the dog in question, 1969. I'm actually writing this story about writing a story about a dog.
Basically I'm putting the photo here so I can show my students. Maybe some day I'll tell all of you about how this magnificent pet saved me from danger.
Yes, students, that's me on the right.
