It took Kim’s grade one teacher a year to realize that Kim did not have a sister called Copper; it was her dog.
Under that climate you can understand that Jedi, the current “sister” is very much involved in everything that effects this family.
To think of a birthday wish without the wishes of Jedi overshadowing it would be a farce.
Jedi loves us but to cooperate with pictures is just not a dog thing. She has been dragged through various experiences of which the last one was to present Kim with a bouquet of flowers.
Kim being in London, it was between Jedi the camera and me. The operation became so tense, I was unaware of the audience I was drawing from the neighbours and the passers by in the street.
My concern was for the flowers that were disappearing between the dogs fat lips before the end of the photo shoot.
The paparazzi and the dog on the balcony was what they saw. Wonder why no one asked for Jedi’s autograph after the ordeal. I say ordeal but believe me, this dog can get a smile and a laugh out of my concrete garden gnome. She is a natural.
