I rescued her from the Humane Society who picked her up as a stray in Tennesee. She lived about 14 years, about 7 of them with me.
She was known for two things. One was her ever-wagging tail. My friend's elderly father couldn't get over her waggely tail and remarked that you could tape a fan to it and she'd cool the whole room down.
Her tail was wagging right up until I had to leave her.
The other thing she was known for was being a dope. Chakra was a good dog, and a sweet dog. But she was also a dumb dog. Her most famous move was getting her cord wrapped around the silliest things.
Like the planter box:
And the walkway railings:
She also got her cord stuck around a small flag holder I have in the yard. It's about a month too early for planting in Wisconsin. But in her honor I planted two orange primroses by the flag holder. They're perrenials so they'll be a pretty reminder of my pup every spring.
Little orange flowers for my little orange dog.
