"A photo of my little man, once a week, every week, in 2015"
 
Reece, when you were born there were three dogs in our family. You don't have any memory of Porscha or Duke, but Shelby, you will remember her. She is a big part of our family, and you love her dearly. I captured this photo, of you and her, one morning this week, as you sat on the front porch, awaiting the arrival of your friend.

  4. So sweet. We had a dog before we had children and he died about three years ago. We were all so sad. It must be especially poignant for children who have never known life without their pets around.

    1. Thank you Jennifer. It is tough, the death of an animal. When our first died, it hit me hard. I didn't grow up with a pet, and she was my first one. So very hard to say goodbye. I imagine it is, and I am sure we will find out one day. Truth be told, I know it will be quite hard for Reece.

  5. so sweet to have a childhood friend...a loyal puppy. I have very fond memories of my dog growing up - I'm pretty sure that having an animal to love helped shape me in who I am today and my love for all creatures. Such a sweet picture kim

    1. Thank you Alyssa. They have a very special relationship, the two of them, and I do think it helps to create a sense of love for all of the creatures of the earth.

    1. Thank you Susan. I think that is what made me grab my camera, the sweetness, and the love I could feel just watching them. It was indeed very precious for this mama.

  12. Kids and animals (especially beloved pets) together just make me so very happy! I grew up with lots of animals and it was something I knew I wanted for my girls too. I'm so glad that they've always had pets in their lives as I truly do think it helps them to develop compassion.

    And I think it goes without saying that I am very keen on Shelby's name! ;) How old is she? Have you had her since she was a pup? xo

    1. I think so too Shel, and it gives them a companion to chat to, and share "secrets" with :)

      Shelby will be 13 in July, and yes, got her when she was 6 weeks old. She is a wonderful dog, and very loved.

  13. They look like they have a very special relationship. And obviously that's also the case with Reece and his friend.
