My mother has wonderful what-nots. One of my favorites as a child was this basket of poochies. In reality, it's a mother dog and her pups, but I always believed it represented me and my two sisters. The two puppies were me and my identical twin. The bigger dog was, of course, our big sister. Today, the poochies sit in my home office, reminding me of Mother and those carefree days of yore.
