the above photo is of the india dog i fell in love with. he was literally the happiest dog i've come across, so very sweet. sadly, he was covered in mange, had some odd skin bumps, and most people gawked at him in horror. the great thing, he knew nothing different. he didn't subscribe to dog fancy so he wasn't aware of the ideal dog. instead, he greeted passersby with the sweetest face and a wagging tail. look at those eyes. tonight's benefit will raise money for two charities and the one that i chose with him in mind is help in suffering. i. heart. lumpieji. 

that was his nickname - lumpie b/c of the skin bumps and "ji" is a form of respect or reverence for a guru or honored person. he was my teacher in india. when our bus pulled out of rishikesh, i cried. i already missed lumpieji. our teachers come in all forms.
namaste.
