On my walk with Joni a while ago I took this as I loved the gentle bowing of the Queen Anne’s Lace heads at the end of the season and their soft tones and colours against the late summer grasses. Now it seems that we are having to say goodbye in a different way.
Joni, our 13 year old border collie that some here will know as my faithful companion on my photo walks and from our many photographs of her, has been diagnosed with a brain tumour 6 weeks ago and so we know that our time with her is coming to an end. It is becoming more apparent that it is progressing now, sadly.
I will miss her loving companionship and faithfulness more than I can say. I am (we both are) spending as much time as I can with her these days, getting my work done too, so I have not had as much time to spend with my G+ friends. Hold on to the special moments with your animal companions. They will be the warm memories that will stay with you long after the pain of loss has dimmed.
