A challenge from Dana

I guess Dana figures I have a few pictures! Since I announced my blog banner charity design service, I have had no time to stamp! So at least I have something to post today...the challenge is to go into your picture files, open the 6th folder and post the 6th picture--a bit of a heartbreaker!

This picture is of Henri and our old dog Zephyr Anyone who used to scrapbook with me knows that Zephyr passed away a few years ago (just a few months after this picture was taken) and how hard this hit me. Well before we knew Henri was sick, we had no idea that life could be so sad. Zephyr was taking in some autumn warmth in the leaves in front of our house and Henri was just giving her some love. The second one is just a better picture of the old girl.

Now I have to challenge 6 people so I'm hoping my new friends who have shared their blogs with me have some great pictures too:

Kristie (the winner of Taylor's blog candy and a new banner, a watermark and sidebar labels)
Janet (a friend of Karen's)

Thanks for looking!

I'll post your challenge later today - will be interesting (fun) to see what comes up and if there's a story to be told! So sorry your story was sad - but at least it makes you really appreciate the good times. Take care and thanx for the challenge! xXx

Great photo of Henri and Zephyr, Nancy! I just starting blogging too and stumbled across your blog. I love it! I hope you don't mind that I linked to your blog from mine (which is a sad little beginner in comparison)!

Love the story, even though it is sad. Zephyr looks like a lovely dog - and wonderful pet for Henri. What kind of dog was Zephyr? She looks like a Schnauzer - we're Schnauzer lovers - lost three a few years ago (still cannot mention one's name without my husband breaking down) and now we have a pretty little tiny white one...Wrigley!
