I recently looked in my kitchen cupboard and realized that I had several bags of coconut. I LOVE coconut, but I don't really cook or bake very much, so it takes forever for it to get used. One bag in particular was coming close to its expiration date, unsweetened dessicated coconut.
If I think back to my earliest memory, it would be curling up in my first family dogs bed alongside her. We would frequently fall asleep together in there. Her name was Brandy, and I think she was a cocker spaniel mix. She was my best friend. I remember the bed being a large wicker laundry basket with a blanket it in. We lived on a farm and things were simple like that. She passed away when I was no more than 5, so that tells you how long ago my love of dogs began.
