When we got home from church and realized the cable and phone lines were back up, the first question I asked my husband was who should be the subject of this week’s Sunday Snapshot.
He retorted, “You!”
After I threw up in my mouth a little bit, I asked him who else he thought should be the focus of this week’s Sunday Snapshot.
And he said, “Velvet.”
Now that, I can do.
I’ve actually been thinking a lot about getting out and taking some pictures of my old girl. She’s not going to be around forever and rarely is she the subject of my picture taking efforts.
I must be getting sappy from seeing all the sweet doggie portraits over on The Pioneer Woman.
We were young and wild and free back then.
Velvet, so named because we foolishly thought she was smooth coated Jack Russell, has been a truly good, if occasionally naughty, canine companion.
She’s run away more times than I can count. Not really run away from us, but towards anything that managed to catch her momentary attention: stray cat, possum, injured bird, dead squirrel, garbage truck.
Whatever happened to strike her fancy.
All this running away took a few years off my life. And added a couple of frown lines, to be sure.
Thankfully, she always came back. Or we managed to find her. Usually the latter.
Additionally, she is quite certain that her age has earned her some senior-citizen treatment around this place… special food, special bed, special treats.
She doesn’t tolerate the kids manhandling at all and does her best to keep them at bay with an aggravated bark.
If that doesn’t work, she moves on to the tooth-baring growl.
But she’s not fooling anyone.
