Sunday 160 - Friends Forever

Two sets of age warn legs 
walking slowly along. 
Pausing occasionally 
to catch their breath. 
Sadly the four-legged one 
looked close to leaving its master lonely.

I think of my Mom and her fur baby, a chihuahua mix name Mini-Me. In fact that pup in the picture looks a lot like her.

How sad. It makes me look at my 3 dogs with fresh eyes this morning. Two of them are getting on in years. I am playing for the first time in a while. Nice to be back.

Isn't it amazing, the things that catch your attention? Be careful, people might get the impression you have a heart made of marshmallow fluff... hey, doesn't the dog need a walk?

Stranger said...

So sad and honest. Makes me grateful for this cat purring on my lap.

Mine's here.

Sad, effective work. Will spoil our cat with even more scritches today, if she lets us.

Here's mine.

Should have put a link in! Sorry, again...

Autumnforest said...

Aw. That is what life is about. Those unexciting moments where we actually make bonds. Pups are the best!

Josh Hoyt said...

This is a great reminder of those we love.

Mona said...

Happy Easter.

Why is the four legged one ready to leave? Is she ill?

bodhirose said...

Sweetly sad. There's something very tender about an old pet with an old owner. Bless them...

Here's mine today: http://bodhirose.wordpress.com/2011/04/24/listening-to-a-rock/

Oh no. That's a bummer.

Sad....:(

Dr. Heckle said...

Very sad indeed... I'm choosing to believe that he was looking like he's leaving because of some young hot female dog he saw across the way.
