This weeks SundayStills was Eyes. I attended a Graduation party last week and of course my camera came with me. This is a niece of our neighbors and I was trying to make her talk to me. I love the ways her eyes sparkle with mischief. I came that evening loaded my pictures to the computer then went to see what the challenge was!! Bingo I thought the perfect shot.
This is Chub it is not the best picture of him, but I needed to put in here for this week's challenge. Chub is somewhere around 16 years old an amazing age for a golden. He looks like he is smiling with contentment doesn't he?
It has come time for me to make a difficult choice and I am afraid this is my valiant friends last week. It has become so difficult for him to get up and walk but I just cannot bring myself to do it. I keep praying he will just pass away in his sleep. I still remember the all the times he drug the boys out of the lake by life jackets (he never understood the swimming for pleasure thing) , the time he ate all the minnows out of my minnow bucket. All the hours he sat on the pontoon with me while I night fished. We never hunted him all he ever retrieved was tennis balls and they just don't come in season.
