This is a favorite photograph because it shows the white touches on her paws. (One of the things I fell in love with the first time I saw her.) I almost cried when she went to the groomer for the first time because she came back looking so grown up. Most of the white on her back paws had been clipped off. She’s about five months old in this photo—still a baby and not yet enrolled in Dog School. At Christmas, I always make a batch of cookies that I call Cocoa Paws. I’ll post the recipe in a week along with photos of the cookies. Then you’ll understand how they got their name. —CS
