Dog days of summer are over

This summer in Japan was quite hot.  Many things changed during those few months.  Most difficult of all was my dog Buick (left) being diagnosed with with a disease called SARDS for which there is no cure or recognized treatment.  Unfortunately, it left him totally blind.  You can somewhat tell by this photo of him making his first friend since then.  It did not last long though as Buick was just too scared.
