Sunset on Monday night, almost the equinox and a beautiful arrangement of colour looking West across Port Phillip Bay from the Black Rock cliffs. Sadly however I was tucked up in bed when the sun rose so don’t know if it was equal in display.

Charlie’s eyes were a beautiful translucent brown, not as dark as other Afghans we have lived with and known. An Afghan’s eyes are unique in the dog world as  they look at and through you, usually one or the other and sometimes both at the same time. They are nearly triangular, slanting slightly upwards from the inner corner to the outer. The Afghan Hound is a sight hound and Charlie often demonstrated this by fixing her eyes on very distant objects. Occasionally one could sense her touching base with genetic memories  from the way she gazed into the distance.
