I have an overnight guest coming in an hour so this has to be short today.
This picture was taken in the convalescent home's yard. Yes, we are wearing the convalescent home's slippers in the yard. We named the dog Shoko, which is a typical girl's name in Japan. Leiya, on the other hand is a completely made up name that no one has ever heard of. For all the years that we had this dog people would get very confused and wonder if our daughter's name was Shoko rather than the dog.
