My adopted dog, Poppy, a homeless pup in Tijuana

A chapter in the book Pets

The Fifth Beatle ?

This is Poppy. He and his 7 brothers and sisters and mom were homeless and wandering the dirty roads of Tijuana, Mexico. A veterinarian took the family in and tended to their immediate health needs then found a fostering foundation in Southern California. From there they went to Olympia, WA, where one by one furever homes were found. This guy was the last one. He had never been given a name. On my drive to pick him up, I stopped for gas and saw a single golden poppy growing out of a crack in the asphault. I thought it odd, a poppy growing out of asphault where so many wheels pass by. Yet against all odds, it just kept growing and blooming. I found it fitting.
