  •  That's my husband, with Sasuke (12+ / 0-)

    He was taking a photography class and also a Photoshop class, and he put the two of them together for a class project with this picture. He was not in the background location when his picture was taken, but was on a different campus of the community college system, and the dog was not at that location either. It just seemed appropriate to me to let Andy have the "last word" or rather, "last image," created by him, for the ending.

    The picture of the dog and cat is also one he photoshopped, but they really did get that close together, peacefully, at times. He just didn't have enough hands free to be able to snap a photo of both of them at once. His space, like all the other spaces in our house at that point, was crowded with stuff, and if either critter had moved suddenly when his hands were occupied, he could have had quite a mess to deal with.

      what a beautiful photo of both of them.

        I don't know why it doesn't register with you that I did. I just went back and tried again, and it comes up with an error message that I wasn't invited, which is a little silly, considering that the message says I was, right at the top. Oh, well. I guess it's up to the support people now.

          sorry there were technical problems and your diary did not get the attention it deserved.

          for what its worth, it touched my heart deeply.

          i figure you wrote about the loss of Sasuke because it is still too soon (even on the one year grief anniversary) to write a diary like this about the loss of Andy.

          so putting the picture of Andy and Sasuke at the end of the diary was the perfect final touch.

          here is a cyberhug for you: {{{{{{{{{Kit RMP}}}}}}}}}

            to the fact that I intended writing more about the "dog piece" of the story in a later diary, and it felt like this was the right time to do that. The whole thing is so big, it's probably going to take several diaries, and a long time, to work through all of it. And of course, the process itself brings up other stuff, so it may end up being one of those "never-ending stories." At least, not until I do....
