The mini-album I mentioned in my last post, the one for the challenge at SiS, is a tongue-in-cheek "tribute" to my dog Sukey. Not that she doesn't deserve a tribute, but I joked as I showed it to DH that it almost sounds as if she's dead...and she's very much alive and sort of a PITA! With all the thunderstorms we've been having lately, she's been a nuisance and totally underfoot, and it's not like she's this heroic dog or something. Take a look at the pics, and you'll see what I mean (click image for a larger pic):
We had a list of patriotic words that we had to use in our mini-album, and so I chose ones that I thought sort of humorously went with the photos I had on hand, to sort of poke fun at her scaredy-cat dog-ness and the highfalutin word list at the same time. Anyways, this weekend has been horrible for her! Something is up with her hips--she doesn't want to go for walks, and can barely get down the stairs. She is obviously in pain, and there were SO many thunderstorms, and to top it off, gunshots across the lake for a sailboat race (also on her top ten list of sounds she's rather go to the vet and get the kennel cough vaccine shot up her nose than hear). And here I am joking about a tribute!! Poor Sukey...she knows I love her dearly and most certainly am NOT wishing her dead! But I can't help but feel a little guilty, especially when I see all the heart-felt entries at SiS.
