This picture is very unique and has important meaning in my life.
This picture remind me of the time when I was 13 and used to
live with my parents. We used to own two dogs, one German
shepherd named “Tiger” and other little Chihuahua “Kiki.”
Even though they were different by size and genes, they were best
friends and loved each other more than any thing. They used to
play and spend most of their time together.
They were my friends, and often I used to take them out on walk.
I spent years with them until I moved out with my friend when I
In the same year , I got a call from my dad “Kiki got ran
over with our neighbor's truck .” That broke my heart and
made me very sad.
This picture is a reflection of my past and brings me memories
of my time with Tiger and Kiki. Looking this picture, here the
dog is looking at a skull of another dog makes me think and
feel that Tiger is lonely and talking to her and expression
how much he wishes that Kiki were still with him.
This brings me a emotional feeling and teenage memories of
past also makes me want to go see my parents and spend
some time with Tiger.
