Picture parade one hundred and fifty-two

In memory of a very beautiful dog: Hazel.

(Must admit that when I was posting last week’s picture parade I had no idea that today’s would be in memory of Hazel. The lesson of always trying to live in the present!)

And I shall close today’s picture parade with the photograph I included in yesterday’s eulogy. For more than any other photograph this one has the camera looking deep into Hazel’s soul.

  1. Oh my – what great photos! That last one makes my heart melt. Hazel sure had an expressive face – and a lovely coat.

  2. Love the photos Paul, they tell such a story of love and caring for each other, and the last photo of Hazel touches my soul as I look deep into her eyes; she was a beautiful girl.

      1. Isn’t that the whole point Paul? Crap lives, yet these animals continue to give us love. I’m sure we don’t deserve it. That’s why our animals get whatever they want. Which is, in truth, very little.

      2. I fully support what you are saying. But if I were a betting man I would bet strongly that you give your animals much more than “very little”. If you get my drift.

  3. All the photos are wonderful. I especially like picture number one, three and, the last one. So much expressive love and gentleness in Hazel’s eyes. She reminds me of one of my dogs from my days of growing up on the farm.

    I hope that you can pick photo that you and Jean like, print it, frame it and, hang in a prominent place in your home.
