This pic.

Oh my.

What wonderful memories this brings back and so cheeky.

The above photo was taken years ago and better days for our little shih tzu.  What a wonderful memory. We traveled a lot over the years and what a trooper our little dog was. She was always ready to hit the highway. She is and always has been a complete doll.

In this photograph she has her lip curled and I could sense what was going on. As the picture was being taken, I decided to join in and mimic the bundle of cuteness going on in the back. It was funny then and we get a kick out of it every time we have a look.

Buttons is 17 years (119 in dog years). Every day now we count as a blessing and one more day we have with our tiny friend. She was much younger, as was I, in this picture. A family friend and companion, with us where ever we have gone.

It is so much fun to look through pictures and to find ones like this that bring back wonderful memories of joy.


A Peek The Daily Post Photo Challenge

On the property line, right next to my house, is a sign that reads Cemetery Road. When my husband and I discussed buying this land, that thought was a bit unsettling. A few folks had explained the cemetery itself is closed. Family still visit their loved ones on occasion.  Some come seeking answers to their ancestry questions. The cemetery in fact is not closed, as we have saw more than a few arrivals. We have also learned the previous owner sold that particular plot to the township with the condition that residents could rest eternal at no cost. Walks from the house to the cemetery are quiet, serene and absolutely beautiful, especially in the fall when the trees are doing their magic.  The view from the house is nothing but breath-taking and the white picket fence only adds the charm.  There really has never been an eerie feeling as one might expect living so close to a cemetery. What once may have seemed a little disturbing to me has turned into a certain kind of comfort. There is a peace of mind knowing I may never have to leave the place I have grown to love and call home.
