Mandy greets Dianne, left, as she arrives at the Daily Grind. The delightful little Shih Tzu is the "granddog" of Edna, rear, and one of the dogs that regularly visits the coffee house patio.
Mandy's person is Edna's granddaughter. Edna has taken care of Mandy since she was a puppy. Shih Tsus are from Tibet and for centuries were the favorite breed of the Chinese Imperial court.
My grandniece, Angel, runs into the room and shouts, "Uncle Bill, take my picture!" After striking several poses she jumps onto the couch and snuggles up to Dianne.
