I got the poodle puppy Yoshi from my parents when we
moved to Hässelby. At that time I was 11 years old and she became my very
best friend. We spent most of the time together and she shared all my
||Yoshi got her nickname from that we
during 1962 had travelled to Asia and spent some time in Japan. We liked
their culture a lot. We were told that Yoshi meant "adopted child" and that
that name is often carried by adopted children in Japan. As we looked upon
our dog as an adopted child we thought it fitted her well.
Yoshi was a wise and very active dog. The most
popular play was to play fetch with a tennis-ball. She could do this for hours with
out giving up. She also loved different types of baby toys that gave a loud
sound when you squeezed it, this could make you crazy when it went on too
||During her last years Yoshi developed
diabetes. She had to have insulin injections every day. This worked very
well as long as we had a snack for her as a reward after taking the
injection. Over time the diabetes made her loose her eyesight but she
managed fine as long as we did not move things into new locations.
In the spring of 1976 she became so ill that we had to
let her go into eternal sleep.
