Uncle Johnny and his Chihuahua named "Dimples"
Sometime in the 1970s, I had dreams of being a professional photographer. During that time, I made a small black and white study of Uncle Johnny, a carpenter by trade, while he was sanding new pine flooring in a building. His little dog, Dimples, was always there at his side. She wasn't an easy going pup and she didn't like anyone getting too close to Uncle Johnny. This little dog and Uncle Johnny lived with us for nine years after his wife's death. Dimples didn't live more than a month or two after Uncle Johnny's death in 1985. She wouldn't eat and became depressed. She truly missed him.
