Good morning from a cool sunny Hastings today.
Sunday Stills, the next Challenge: Happiness is.
I have been thinking about this challenge by Sunday Stills for the past couple of days. What is happiness? I browsed through some of the blogs I follow and they are all so different, but it was great to see what made people happy. Then I remembered these photos I took on Christmas day. So I thought about how pets can bring such happiness into peoples’ lives.
This is my mother holding her pet poodle Abby. Abby is 12 nearly 13 years old and going blind. My mother has been rather unwell lately but Abby has been a constant companion with her. This pose will always be how I will remember both. I didn’t want a photo that was stiff and posed so I got Mum to pick up Abby and just took the photos. I am not sure she would like the editing so I will print out a “normal” photo for her.
The second photo is their cat Missy. Yet another calico cat. Missy is a gorgeous long haired cat and just dotes on my father.
So today I get to kill two birds with one stone. I can put this towards Hope* the happy hugger‘s Michelle’s weekly Pet Challenge. Week 17.
Thanks for visiting.
Here are some other great blogs for the Sunday Stills Challenge:
