Yes, she did end up getting the ball! 😀
Jennifer Nichole Wells sponsors the One Word Photo Challenge. This week the word is Giraffe!
There are a couple of challenges this past week with the theme of FRIEND, The Daily Post and One Word Photo Challenge. There are so many ways to portray this theme. I chose to show how “friendly” we all are at my house! 😉
My dear friend, Ellen, together with a friend of hers, invented and now has a growing business making “Halo Vests” to help blind dogs navigate without injuring themselves. It works so well and has become so popular that they now sell internationally. They have also made Halo Vests for cats and sheep! I wanted to take this opportunity to share this information in case there is anyone who has a beloved pet needing help or maybe knows someone in that position. Please feel free to share! Let’s help these little ones!

I’m using Inky’s picture again this week. You can see the original HERE on last week’s Sunday Selfies post.
I used Dreamscope’s Fire Prayer and framed it with Fotor’s bold border to create the picture below.
It has been too long since I have posted anything and I am extra sad to return with this post. But I must pay tribute to one of the sweetest little creatures ever to have walked the earth.
You took your last breath at 5:45 a.m. on Monday, October 3. We’re not sure what transpired to have you leave us so soon. We were not ready. You are missed but now you are with all your furry little siblings who have gone before.
I remember the first day you came to us. I was in the house and suddenly Bobby (our Boston Terrier) and Emmy (our Maltese) started raising such a ruckus in the living room. I looked out the picture window to see what was the matter. There on the sidewalk in front of the window sat a forlorn, skinny, little Poodle just looking at the two dogs inside. I was afraid if I went out, he would run away from me. But I had to take that chance. I walked outside and spoke softly to you. You walked over to me and rolled over. I was completely smitten. But you were covered in burrs and fleas. Something had to be done. So I took you into the garage and you let me bathe you and cut those burrs out of your hair.
Shortly after that, we began the search for your parents. I just knew someone had to be looking for you. We posted pictures and went to all the vet clinics within several miles. I got very upset at one clinic when the tech sneered and said, “I saw that dog hanging around my neighborhood for a week.” I went ballistic. Needless to say, that vet clinic lost any business from me and mine. But I digress. We notified the Humane Society and Animal Control. After a couple of weeks and no reports or inquiries regarding missing Poodles, you became ours. I think by that time, I probably wouldn’t have given you up even if someone had come looking. 😛
You fit right in from the start. You were always the sweetest and most loving little dog. You will always be in our hearts and in our minds. We look to the day when we can all be reunited in Heaven.
