Sahraa makes a friend (6/6)

Sahraa makes a friend (6/6)

We had our annual Easter egg hunt for the embassy community on Saturday, and before most of the guests had arrived, my husband and a colleague were distributing the eggs on the front lawn. Sahraa ran up to our friend, who isn't even a dog person, and parked herself at his side. It was amazing; I've never seen her take to anybody like that before. Those of you who have read or heard about Sahraa know she is incredibly camera averse, but in this instance she didn't even notice the lens pointed at her.

It's wonderful when a dog shows friendship to a stranger. Maybe he reminded her of someone from her past, you can see there is certainly a connection between them! Thanks for sharing the lovely series Helen.

What a delightful day you have, Helen!
Sahraa was too happy and didn't know this great photo had been done.
