FLASHBACK! As a puppy, Wilbur's severe overbite caused his teeth to be misaligned. If not treated, his lower canine teeth would have grown into his palate causing pain and injury and difficulty eating and closing his mouth. His bite was corrected by wearing braces from a veterinary dentist. ( Yes, there are animal dentists, but not for cosmetic surgery.) You can find the story and a photo of his orthodontics at The BARk Canine Culture Magazine.
A pure white House Finch is either leucistic or albino. Only the eye color can reveal for sure which it is. If it's albino, the eyes will be pink or red. Aiming the camera lens through a window and screen softened the focus considerably. Hopefully I'll get another opportunity for a close up and more revealing detail.
My beloved huskies, Roger, Carlo and Lilah used to eat these flowers on our walks. Though the three are gone now, the forget-me-nots continue to bloom on the path that we took. And each time I see them, I am reminded of the infinite space best friends can occupy in our hearts.
