Sasha Eisenbrandt

Tails of Our Town
From the favorite photo archives of Lou and Jim Eisenbrandt comes this tail of a girl and her dog. Little Jen, who is now a kindergarten teacher at St. Michael the Archangel School in Leawood, and her St. Bernard, Sasha, peered through the window on a rainy day in Our Town back in 1974. Long-haired Sasha, a gentle giant, is still missed and remembered fondly today.
