There's a small, snub-nosed, dog-shaped hole in my heart.


  1. She's a sweetie...love the profile shot!

  2. Oh no.......
    Not that kind of hole, please?

    My heart goes out to you. What a lovely and precious dog. May the memories help to heal that emptiness.

    Kind regards, Kitty xx

  3. You mean...Shelly died? If so, my commiserations. She looked like a real character. The first fluffy-haired photo reminds me of Tina Turner!

  4. Susan - yes. A real sweetie. And with an unexpected sense of humour. She loved irony.

    Kitty, YP. Thank you. Unfortunately yes.
    She was an important part of our lives for 12 years. But pets don't live as long as humans, that's just the way it is. It's quiet around here, but we are getting on with things.

  5. I'm so so sad for you.

  6. My condolences on your loss. Dogs certainly capture our hearts.
