Birthday memories keep the spirit alive and well

Nearly three decades ago, the diminutive heart dog Teisha was born in Medina, OH. Some 9 weeks later, she was acquired in a most serendipitous way and with hopes to become an adventure catalyst (as opposed to venture capitalist). Teisha only spent a brief amount of her life in The Buckeye State -- her life experiences took her first just a bit west  to Michigan, then further out to California, back east to Connecticut and finally her last years were spent in and around Philadelphia. But her heart and soul were all Ohio -- cheerful, plucky, brave and appreciative of all the vicissitudes of life that are the hallmark of Ohioans.

So here on what would have been her 29th birthday, a little birthday song.

Ohio Dogs

(sung to the tune of "California Girls" by The Beach Boys).

When East coast dogs go yip, they really dig in dirt with cheer,
And the southern dogs with the plagues they endure, just to survive is their career.

The prairie canines on the plains are really out of sight,
And the northern hounds with the way they howl, they keep a lot of folks awake all night.

I wish they all could be buckeye (wish they all could be buckeye) canine pals
I wish they all could be buckeye (wish they all could be buckeye) canine pals

Ohio has no hurricanes, minimal floods and oil spills
I dig an autumn view on an October day unlike anywhere else in the whole world
I’ve been all 'round this great big world and I’ve seen all kinds of dogs,
Yeah, but I couldn’t wait to get back to the former mistake on the Lake,
back to the cutest pups in the world.

I wish they all could be buckeye (wish they all could be buckeye) canine pals
I wish they all could be buckeye (wish they all could be buckeye) canine pals
