The photo challenge this week is all about the colour yellow. My choice to represent the theme is this puppy carrying his new toy, a leaf. This was taken in Guyana, South America, in a village called St. Cuthbert’s Mission. I was there volunteering for three months, a fantastic experience that I recommend to everyone. The sad thing about this picture though, is that it is probably one of a couple (if not the only) in existence of this particular puppy as he somehow died the next day. Animals, dogs in particular, have a rough time in the developing world compared to the cushy life many of their cousins have in North America. It was sad. But I have fond memories of watching this little guy play and explore the world around him, making games out of the nature that was his home – toys were not necessary when you have giant leaves like this!
