In keeping with the theme of family pets from the past, I thought I would post this picture.
This photo was taken in 1965. I am on the right ( age 8 ) and my sister on the left ( age 4 ) with Cleo in the middle ( age 4 months ).
Eventually, Cleo became my mom’s dog, but we loved her anyway.
She liked to sit on the window sill (like a cat!) and look out the window. She also loved to play with balloons knocking them around with her nose.
She loved car rides, and later in life, she took great satisfaction in barking at me when I tried to sneak out of the house or into the house after curfew without being noticed.
