gentle on my mind

This is a photo of my old friend Pashka. I discovered it on a disc of photos I'd saved before the Big Hard drive Crash of '09 and it brought back so many memories of this beautiful Siberian Husky. She passed on two years ago on the last day of winter at age 16. This captured her in one of her typical poses--sniffing the air for anything tantalizing--rabbits, garbage, bacon. And it nicely shows that sweet little mustache she sported. You can read more about her here.

And since Pashka always looked lovely in any color, here's one photo from my trip to D.C. last week where the cherry blossoms were just starting to open around the city. These were in the Bishop's herb garden at the National Cathedral.

Happy Monday, my bloggie friends!

What lovely cherry blossoms. I can't wait until our start to pop I live with fruit orchards all around me. Your pashika was a lovely.

Pashka was truly beautiful. Nearly 17 is a very good age indeed for a Husky. I read about her with tears in my eyes and loved the quote 'Dogs' lives are too short. Their only fault really.' It's something we say all the time - their lives are over too quickly.

Beautiful cherry blossoms. It's on my list of things to do ... get to DC to see them in bloom. Pashka was one gorgeous lady! Love the look on her beautiful face.
