Here you can see just how thin Nina was when we first arrived at the Little House.  It's a miracle she survived the tick fever.  She was a wonderful dog.

I’m sorry there aren’t more pics, but the quality of the film  has proved that many of our photographs just haven’t stood the test of time as well as they might.
