Going to the dogs

Since this is still the Chinese Year of the Dog (until Feb 18 when it turns pigish;-), I thought I'd introduce you to some of my canine neighbors:

This post is dedicated in memoriam to my baby, a Golden Retriever named Donovan. Here's winking at you, kid...

Well, we certainly are on the same wavelength today, Isabella! These are gorgeous dogs that really make me smile. And your photos are wonderful. Each one has a unique perspective on a dog's life. I love your golden retriever sweetheart! What a great pose and portrait. Great job. You and I should sit down and talk about our favorite lines of "Best in Show," such as, "now he's approximately cute!"

Oh, so many incredible dogs. I love the composition on each one (as well as the expressions in each of their eyes!) and what a lovely tribute at the end.

Not only are the dogs just adorable, I'm particularly fond of how you linked to rescue sites for each breed. Well done!

I love dogs. One day when I stop traveling so much I hope to get another one. Nobody gives you unconditional love like a dog.

I understand you perfectly (see this post). Be brave.

Aw, what a great post. I could curl up with any of these dogs. :)

I think this is my favorite of all your posts....and seeing the photo of Donovan-well, even I miss him! What a treasured memory.

Isabella, it's been a while since I've gone blog-hopping...sorry I missed your quiz.

What sweet-looking dogs! Golden retrievers are so lovable!

I miss mine too...still dream of her even though years have passed.

Thank you all for your nice comments.
Despite appearances, this was not an easy post since I exposed a bit of myself, but ultimately I'm glad I shared.
Susan - I dream about Donovan often...
