I meet many dogs in our village. This is a Lhasa Apso named
One dog which always has a place in our heart belonged to my wife's sister but resided with her mother in the 1950s. He has appeared on my Sepia posts before, but deserves another outing.
He gives me my first link to our prompt for this week.
|Billie Holiday with a dog|
Now when we go on holiday we always get involved with dogs - and they regard it as a holiday too. These two we didn't know but they loved a Cornish beach.
|Paddling on Crantock beach|
My daughter's dogs in Michigan always look on it as a holiday when we are there. One of them was always content to practise his favourite sport alone.
|Cody fishing for frogs|
Buster however was always impatient when we took him out in Caranton Woods in Cornwall.
|Come on you two. Keep up!|
The dog park near my daughter's home was a place her dogs always loved. It meant that they could dive in and climb out up a ramp.

Of course there was also the ever present tennis ball to play with, if Cody didn't wander off to look for a treat by sitting down at somebody's holiday picnic spread.
Scout was named after the girl in Harper Lee's 'To Kill a Mockingbird' even although he is a boy.
It seems appropriate somehow to finish this post with him on the day that the death of Harper Lee is announced.
|Scout - at rest|
RIP Harper Lee.
