Single Sunday

First of all I want to say a big thank you to all the people who have left  comments, e-mails and text messages after I lost my best buddy; Jim. The blogging community really is like one big family. Thank you.


Today's picture is from Wales; from my last visit there with Jim. Although he hated the journey, once he was there he soon settled down. He loved being with his friends, Bud and Poppy, the wide open spaces, and the freedom to roam and do what a dog should do; sniff out all the new smells, and leave his mark for others to find.



When I took the picture, I had a title come to mind straight away.




King of the hill



Enjoy your Sunday.

  1. i am so sorry to hear of the loss of your best buddy. I have just inherited a rather ugly chocolate all sorts dog with a sweet temper who has become my shadow.
    We lost our dog 26 years ago and as you know, a super dog cannot be replaced. 9 year old Koockie I could not refuse since his owner could no longer live independently.

    Are you sure that is the king of the hill? It looks more like a queen to me . . .

  3. Thanks Arija.
    I'm sure your shadow will be an excellent companion.

    Yea, you're right, it is a 'queen' of the hill, but that didn't sound right to me. A bit of poetic licence lol
