The dog's name is Penny

Here is Jerry Ball, one of the earliest members of Yuki Teikei Haiku Society,
at the YT Haiku Retreat at Asilomar last weekend.
I think there are only three of us left who joined soon enough to know Mr. Kiyoshi Tokutomi,
and Jerry is one. When I went over to talk to them this time, he said, "Penny says . . .."
and looking at his wife, I said, " I thought your name was Sandy." 
She laughed and told me it was the dog who was named Penny.
This is how I found out that there is someone besides my husband who
quotes from the wise words of dogs. . .
We were all thrilled to get to spend a little time with Jerry.    jhhymas
