Photo Hunt: Water


This is a picture of one of my best friends. When I first moved to Canada, she was my constant companion and Tora’s favorite playmate. Her name was Mukiwa and she was a beautiful lab cross (the vet thinks she was part Chow because her tongue was black.) Unfortunately, Mukiwa had some painful health issues that we were unable to fix, so she is no longer with us. When she was alive though, she could find water anywhere and always managed to plop herself into the middle of it! She was very happy when we moved up here and loved the terrain and the weather. Every day was a new adventure for my inquisitive, playful pup. I will always associate water with an image of Muki splashing, prancing and playing.

  18. Thank you for visiting my blog and all the nice comments. I love your water picture. It makes me think of our friend John’s black lab. Bro is a great dog, but he is getting older and has hip problems. Bro goes everywhere (and I mean EVERYWHERE) with John. Wayne and I get to enjoy Bro when John comes to visit. We call Bro our “rent-a-pet” since we don’t have a dog of our own. — Margy
