always there



when I call

you’re always there

charlie girl


Yesterday on February 28th our beautiful Afghan Hound Charlie Girl who has inspired my haiku and this blog finally succumbed to the serious illness’s she has bravely been struggling with since mid last year.  Today Jill and I have deep feelings of sadness. Charlie was an exceptional dog who shared our lives and travelled widely with us as I wrote and imaged on many posts. Lots of my wonderful readers have expressed lovely responses to Charlie’s stories and images. She will live forever in our hearts and also  on Haikuhound.
