    I lost this wonderful dog about 7 years ago to cancer. Rarely does a day go by that I don't think of him.

      This is a really beautiful photo....he was lucky to have you and visit these wonderful places and he was a real beauty.... I love my dog more than anything, so can't imagine what it will be like when I lose her.... or what also worries me is if she lost me ..... it's a very special connection between people and dogs..... I am glad you shared this beautiful photo of you and Otto.
      Seen on your photo stream. (?)

      Otto had a pretty rich life, and for a large dog (100 lbs) a long 13 year life too. He grew up in Fairbanks, spent some time pulling my brother through the wilderness on skis (skijeering) to get to his homestead. I think one summer he was tied up in a field when there was no other option for my brother ;< . Then to Anchorage for a few cushy years with my parents, followed by one day showing up at the Seattle International Airport to live with me.... He lived across about a four and a half thousand mile range, and had been through more states than many Americans. Yes, it was devastating when I lost him. But he still lives in our memories and on Flickr!

      love the vintage feel, also love how it depicts a beautiful moment before a stunning scene... meaningful photos like this (well, to you in this case) are what make photography so amazing imo :)

      I still grieve over a lost canine friend too - in a way I think I've mourned more for that dog than I have for (human) family members that have passed. They are so loyal, and never betray you or belittle you or hurt you, they just want to be part of your "pack" and by your side, whatever you may be doing. this image is so lovely; you dog looks like he was a gentle soul, thanks for sharing and sorry for your loss.
