Mr. Sparky was an Aussie with fierce comedic timing. He had two extroverted sisters that expected all the attention. Sparkles would wait until the girls were running out to tackle a thrown ball and he'd run to my feet and lean against my legs or drop and give me access to his furry belly. When one of the girls was preoccupied, he'd sneak up on them and pounce, usually managing to bounce away before they got their retaliation in. Spark was shy about getting his picture taken, watching me coyly and turning his face away when the phone came up, so each image I have of him was a gift. Sparky fought a very hard battle with cancer and though he had to say goodbye, his strength and self-possession through it all speaks volumes of the boy he was.
