A Man’s Best Friend


One of my dear friends has a new man in his life.

Yes, he goes by the name of


Storm is 3 years old, and came into our friend’s  life  some time  after  his dearest girl, Sam passed over the Rainbow Bridge.

Here is Sam, again at our home,  black, large gentle eyes, so much loved.

After a little persuasion, Storm faced the camera for this super shot.

Hey Storm, I was sitting there

If I lie here long enough, and look like this, will I get a treat?

One eye on the action

Well HELLO Storm! So good to meet you! I hear things are a bit new to you? I am sure everything will work out fine. What a beauty you are!
Sophie would 'show you ropes' if she was nearer.
Jean, thanks for sharing. One of Sophie's best friends is a German Shepherd.

It's so hard when a family pet dies. Sam was a beautiful looking dog. So glad your friend has a new companion, and he sure is handsome.
