She was a loyal companion, friend, and unbeknownst muse of sorts, instrumental in starting my photographic journey. For more than fifteen years, we had the pleasure of McGee’s wonderful presence.
This photo is from the archives (circa 2003), and shows the lovely light that McGee exuded and was. Although it has been one year since she left us, I still miss her greatly.
They are so good, these canine and feline friends. We never do forget them. This is a beautiful photo of a dog with an obvious good soul.
She certainly was a good soul. Thank you so much, Lois.
she’s beautiful, thanks for sharing.. ; )
Dianne, thank you very much.
Awww…I know what it feels like to lose a darn good dog – my Elsie dog, who died way too early at the age of 4yrs old, has been gone for going on fourteen years now, still miss her with all my heart . With time, I hope your pain eases.
I appreciate the sentiments, d. We shall never forget these wonderful companions who come into our lives for a short period of time, but change our lives forever.
You couldn’t be more right when you said “…change our lives forever.” 🙂
Thanks for making me smile!
Wonderful photo! Their time here with us is never as long as we would like, that’s for sure…
Thank you very much, Tricia.
A beautiful photo and a beautiful dog! I know how you feel.. we never forget them.. we lost a dog almost 9 months ago now, and I think about him everyday! But now instead of crying when I think of him, most of the time I smile! I’m sure you are smiling for McGee too!
I am smiling, from McGee, and from your lovely comment. Thank you.
What a beautiful photo! And McGee has to be one of the most adorable dogs I’ve ever seen. What breed was she?
Thank you so much. McGee was a mixed breed — predominantly Border Collie with perhaps a touch of Dalmation — that we rescued from the Humane Society. (In reality, she probably rescued us.)
How lovely is that statement x
A great friend and a great loss!!
She was a great friend. Thank you, Santi.
Beautiful photo and memory…you should frame it… 🙂
Thank you very much, Joanna.
What a beautiful photo of a gorgeous dog, Shine on forever McGee.x
Thanks, Vicky. When I saw the beautiful photos of your dogs, it brought back a flood of memories. Thanks for the comment and inspiration.
We lost our dog Honey almost three years ago. I suspect we’ll never forget.
You can tell McGee was a sweetheart by the look on her face.
Thank you so much for the wonderful thoughts.
She’s beautiful! The only bad thing about dogs is that they will ultimately break your heart. But the love they give us while they are alive is worth it.
Laurie, your wonderful dog photography is an inspiration to all. Thank you very much for the comment and the great work.
I’m sure most of us have been there. We lost our rescued greyhounds 3 months apart and that was a few years ago and we still miss them terribly. Your McGee looks like she was a real sweetheart!
Joleen, I appreciate your kindred comment.
she was beautiful.. and I can see that you loved her greatly. no dog can have a better life than that.
I did love her greatly. Thank you for the kind words, Vicki.
This made me go hug my four dogs. Oh, the cuddly, loyal canines who steal our hearts. I understand how you feel. What a cutie she was.
Susie, thank you so much and hug those canine companions!
Awww…she’s beautiful. Great light.
Thank you so much for the comment.
She is so beautiful… And your photograph too. I understand too how you feel. Thank you for sharing with us. With my love, nia
I appreciate the comment, nia. Thank you so much!
I can deeply understand your pain. We are dreading the day our wonderful icelandic sheepdog must leave us, hopefully we still have some time with him. He is thirteen, but still going strong and he still eats his carrots every day 😉
It is painful to lose such a wonderful friend, but the memories of great times together sustain me. Hopefully, your friend will be with you for many, many more months. Keep feeding him the carrots!
I can see whay she was a great companion and photographers muse.
She was a wonderful companion and friend — thanks very much.
She looks like she was a beautiful and loyal friend! I love the way the lighting makes her glow!
McGee was a glowing light in so many ways. I appreciate the wonderful comment, Tammy.
Wonderful angle for capturing the light and detail. A great photograph to seal her memory.
Christian, thank you so much for the nice comment!
