Best Wishes… and Sad News

Diana's dogs napping on a pillow.My best wishes for a good New Year to everybody.

I’m sorry that I have to begin the year myself with bad news; my lovely dog JJ died this afternoon (complications from a freak accident he suffered two weeks ago) and we buried him next to my garden, where he loved to hunt rabbits and toads with his brother, Homer.

Homer is bereft and so are we.


In the upper-right image, JJ and Homer take a nap together. In the next photo, JJ looks for critters to chase in a prickly pear cactus:

  1. I am so sorry for your loss. Animals choose us, not the other way round. Your loss is now your guardian angel; talk to him as you work and rest, as he will still listen.

  2. I am so sorry to learn of your loss. Thank you for sharing the photos. He truly seemed like a special one. God bless.
