Black and White Sunday – Me and My Girl

Just a crappy little photo taken on my iPad but a special moment captured:)


I am thinking of our friend Sue from Graceful Greyhounds today.  She lost her beloved Song very suddenly on Friday.  

Cancer sucks.  As Sue always says “Hug your hounds” because you never know when you’re not going to be able to do it again.  Make the most of the special moments, make memories to treasure and look back on.  RIP Song, run free, look out for Poppy and Flynn.  Stay strong, {{{Sue}}}

“We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only certain immortality,
never fully understanding the necessary plan.” 

Irving Townsend


A couple of friends have told me that they couldn’t leave a comment on this post.  Neither can I if I log out:(  I have no idea what’s wrong, everything looks the same as usual so I’ll just hope it’s a temporary hiccup.

    Ah, looks like comments are working now:). I uninstalled a plug in that I updated yesterday and stopped getting the gobbeldygook error message but a comment still wouldn’t show up. So I installed the plug in again and I think it’s back to normal, fingers crossed!

    I love every moment I can snuggle with my houndies. Especially in light of the fact that they can be taken away at any moment like Song. So sad!

    Beryl is so sweet. That’s a nice quote. It’s so said that Song passed away, such a shock.

    Hi Sue, All seems to be working now.

    Thank you so much for your kind words about Song. Those quotes are so apt.

    I will be posting some fab news on my blog today;)

    Please give Frankiie and the beautiful Beryl a hug from me.

    Is there room for me there MIL?! It’s such a terrible shame about Song and such a shock. She had a wonderful retirement with Sue and was so loved. Deccy x

    That was terrible news about the beautiful Song….. My Mum and Dad hug and love me every day, and Mum takes photos nearly every day, as well. Mum told Dad that she has very few pictures of her beloved Afghan, Rosko, who passed over the Rainbow Bridge in 1988, and she’s determined to have thousands of photos of me!

    Love your photo… Beryl looks so snuggly and cute. :-)

    Such a sweet picture! I need to get some pictures of us humans with the hounds, even though I don’t like to have my picture taken. Song’s sudden passing does make you realize that life is short and needs to be savored every day.

    It’s it great the way our pups find just the right fit?

    BTW, thanks for sharing the Irving Townsend quote. Loved it. I’ve never cared for the Rainbow Bridge “poem” but this one sums up the life “within a fragile circle.”

    You both looked so sweet in that photo and you inspired me with that piece of quote from Irving Townsend!

    I think it’s a great photo! and Song’s sudden death has made me more aware to stop rushing around being superwoman and spend more quality time with the hounds.

    Love and hugs Sue and the Taylor pack plus Belle

    Awww, sweet photo. I’m so sorry to hear the sad news. Cancer really does suck. I wish someone would hurry up and find a cure already.
