Grover – our Fiji hound. A very loving dog. He used to sit on the sea wall and wait for the boys to come home from school (Suva Primary) on the school bus. He jumped for joy when they appeared – I think it was the highlight of his day.

Here’s a picture of my brother in the 1950’s – he’s with our dog Duchess on Hill’s Pond in New Hampshire. Lots of nice memories there!
