Thoughts of nature and memories
August 19, 2008 at 9:43pm
When I look at tall trees I feel as if they are like poetry reaching towards the sky writing words from earth to heaven. Going back at times to drive by the country place I see how tall the spruce, birch and other trees are we planted years ago. The dream was to have the house hidden by trees. There was always the woods and trails I loved to work on behind the the trees are becoming the woods in front of the house. The new owners have kept feeding the deer in winter and have made the place so beautiful and cared for. It's good to see the place thriving.

Squiggy bulldog passed over the Rainbow bridge 2/10/08
Kit tabby cat crossed the Rainbow bridge 10/16/08
Squiggy and Kit were best friends...Squiggy almost 12 and Kit was 11.
Sofie Snowfeet, golden retriever, passed over the Rainbow Bridge 7/27/2011. She was 12 years, nine months and six days old.
We still have Heffala , City and Bessie bulldog at this time.
There never seems to be enough time with those we love.
Heffala Humphrey bulldog crossed the rainbow bridge the morning of 12/12/2013. She was 12 years , one month and 13 days on this earth. She came into my life when I lost a dear bulldog in Dec of 2001 and was also know has QOE and many other nicknames. Her sidekick was Pluto. Grief, loss is a long journey. She's with all our past pets and with flickr friend's pets who have crossed over before her. I imagine them running and being restored to full health .
Mike passed away on Jan. 13 , 2014 known on flickr as Roofer 1. It's been a very difficult and sad year and for awhile City and Bessie bulldog and myself have managed.
City bulldog....CSS Humphrey and son of Heffala bulldog crossed over the Rainbow Bridge early afternoon of August 2, 2014, He was the healthy boy and suddenly had a fast moving heart condition . He passed with his head over my lap and my arms hugging him and loving him as he crossed over. Bessie was his true love and she wonders where has everyone gone.

    "All women are crazy, but Suzy is a crazy girl with a big heart! She is crazy in a fantastic and artistic way and her big heart shows in all she does! Her love and interest for horses are unbeaten, and also for her dogs. Her little stories that goes along with her photos are sometimes funny, sometimes makes you think, but are always well written. Some of them are art in it self! She is also the best of friends and you will look forward to her comments! Give her a try, I promise you won't be disappointed!"

    "As a newcomer to photography and Flickr, I was lucky enough to hook up with Suzy fairly quickly. She immediately made me feel welcomed and has been a dear Flickr friend ever since. She has a heart of gold and goes above and beyond the call of duty with her generous spirit and overall kindness.

    She is an incredible inspiration to the Fickr community with her volunteer work, good nature, and wonderful sense of humor. Her photographs always make us smile along with her precious animal stories. I always look forward to each of Suzy's latest pictures and tales with anticipation. What an amazing person she has been to the Flickr community and especially to me with her unique talent and giving personality."

    "I was attracted to her Bulldogs faces instantly ! How cute and fun they seem. But I got a bonus...their owner Suzy is such a sweetheart. Suzy captures photos in a way none of us do. Her love of animals and the beauty in life is so evident. How much I have come to love seeing the City Gang almost daily. Her pictures have warmed my heart on days I felt bad, her pictures have given me smiles when I thought I was sad, I share her love of music, the words she adds have compassion and clarity of our need to bond and share. I feel so honored to call her friend here at FlickR and hope to be able to enjoy her creativity and sweetness for much much longer."

    "I know Susy from; a few years already! Although we haven't met personally I feel like we know each other quite well and for a long time.
    If we ever meet someday, it won't be difficult at all to look at her and give her a big hug!
    Her photos are wonderful and so are her darling dogs, Heffala, Squiggy, City, Bessie and Sophie! (Hope I didn't forget any...)
    Heffala is the QOE, what a temper, what a character!!!
    Squiggy, the senior dog, a Champion! City likes to bake Angel Food Cakes for any special occasions!
    Bessie is still a young lady and lots to learn from her teachers!
    Sophie, the Golden Retriever is as sweet as she can be!
    They always make me smile wanting for the next photo!
    Susy has a brilliant mind to tell stories, and they match so well to the photos she uploads!
    It's an honour to be her friend!

    "Suzy is a very caring sensetive woman with a wonderful sense of humour and love for the animals and people around her. When I have time to visit her photos, I feel the warmth of her spirit shining through the stories about her dogs or the other captions she writes. We don't get in touch a lot but I value her distant friendship. It is better to have a distant friend than a close neighbour that you don't see at all."

    "bulldog1 has one of my favorite photostreams on flickr. Suzy is a very talented photographer and storyteller who never fails to amaze me with new, fun ideas. Her dog's personalities all shine through with the help of her wonderful imagination. When I need a moment, I love knowing Bulldog Land is just a click away. Keep it up Suzy, your creativity is refreshing!"
