Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet. ~Colette

I have the best blog readers.  (Yes, I’m buttering you up.)   I’m always aware of how great you guys are, but you’re at your best when I’ve had to say goodbye to a furry friend.  Your comments that you’ve left at those times have touched me and moved me in ways I can’t express.

Since I have nothing for you today, could you please go give Monika some of your comforting words?    Monika had to say goodbye to one of her dogs and I’m sure she could use all the love she can get.   If you’re not a regular reader of hers and are concerned about seeming like a creepy stalker-person, just tell her that I sent you.

The dog that Monika had to say goodbye to was a German Shepherd named Sam.    I’ve always been especially fond of her Sam since I also used to have a German Shepherd named Sam.    I will miss seeing her Sam in her blog posts and reading about his antics.   He was a wonderful dog.

If you have the time, scroll through her blog and check out the pictures of her gorgeous dogs.  Besides Sam, she has a second white German Shepherd (Biko).    Monika adores them and that comes through in her photographs.

My 365 project has come to a screeching halt.

Shortly after taking yesterday’s photo, my camera broke.   Thankfully, it’s under warranty.   Not so thankfully, the warranty repair center is halfway across the country.

This afternoon I packed up my beloved camera, insured the hell out of it and sent it on its way.

I made it 139 days.  Some of the days were a lot of fun and some were agony.  I learned a lot, but I’m not sure I like being obligated to produce a picture each day.   During the time my camera is in the hospital I’m going to figure out whether or not to continue this project for the remaining 226 days.

I definitely need to sleep on it.

Day 139: Peek-a-boo.

Day 138: Over the rooftop.

Day 137: Pretty weed.

Day 136: Hazy evening.

Day 135: Rope toy.

Day 134: Downtown.

Day 133: Groovy.

Day 132: Chillin’.
