I’ve posted this picture here on my blog before, several years ago, but this week’s challenge at I Heart Faces is for pictures of pets only, so I wanted to enter my very favorite pet photo of all time.
I took this picture of Jenny back in the fall of 2007, just a couple months after we adopted her from the shelter. At the time I was so in love with this dog – she was sunshine and love rolled into a furry ball. She exuded excitement and joy, and at the point I was in my life, this was exactly what I needed.
Unfortunately Jenny doesn’t live with us anymore. She and our older dog, Daisy, just couldn’t get along and we ended up finding her a home with a rescue group we know and trust. We check on her often, and I know that she is living with a big family of dogs, with a leader who can give her exactly what she needs, but I do miss her sometimes, particularly when I look at this shot and remember how happy she made me.
