When Judy first came to that home, she was loved so much by the human mom and the human kids. But the human dad was a little "different" than most of us. When Judy once tried to get out of the fence, his idea of teaching her to stay inside it was to pick her up and throw her at the fence.....body slam! I am horrified to this day to even think of that. And, when the human dad got into one of his cowboy John Wayne modes, he would shoot Judy's back side with BB's. My heart still hurts over that. The human mom could do nothing. There was a control freak in the home! It was one of the reasons she left one day, and took Judy with her!
Anyhow, Judy was never a bad dog. She played with the kids, slept with anyone who would have her (130 pound bed hog she was!), and in general just tried to love everyone. The only time I ever, ever heard her growl was when she got old, and someone gave her a bone. Boy, you'd better not touch that bone! That was HER bone!
For the past couple of years, since she lost her human mom, she has been living with someone who cared very much about her and took good care of her. Last week, Judy went to Doggie Heaven. She was about 14 or so years old, pretty old for a Lab. But for the majority of her life, she was loved and pampered. She is with her human mommy now, and her human granddaughter. I can imagine they are running through fields of clouds, throwing cloud frisbies and picking cloud daisies. Don't you think?
Snoozing Judy in her elder years
So......I know I have been gone for quite awhile but I am trying to get my life together, get my muse back,
do SOMETHING!!! Today, I played photographer and here are a few
photos I took.
A photographer I am not, and my camera is simple with no special filters, lens, buttons, etc. But here they are anyway, unretouched (except for cropped). Hope you enjoy.
LIGHT AND COLOR
BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL.
