Nothing But Norman #77

Happy Saturday All and Happy 2015 of Nothing But Norman!

Project16 - Copy - Copy - Copy

I was looking for a New Year’s picture of Norman and I couldn’t find any. I need to get better at organizing my pictures so I can find ones to go along with time frames. While searching I came across a photo where my chessie’s brought two people from many miles away together and a special friendship formed, this was taken in May of 2012 when Amy a facebook friend I never met before flew into WI to visit relatives and met me at a hunt test. It makes me smile that she got to meet Norman before he left this world. Without Norman, I wouldn’t have “my lines” or “my pups” nor would I have the great friendships that arose from the brown curly dogs. The friendships that develop between people who love dogs is something that can’t be replaced.

Sisterhood

If you should feel sorrow or pain,
Let me share it with you,
And hold you close,
If you should feel happiness or joy
I will rejoice, and we will dance and sway,
laughter our song of praise

Every tear that you weep,
I shall catch, and turn them into rainbow gems,
Place them in Mother Earth
Where they shall grow and bloom,

Every smile that you smile,
Ten thousand of like kind,
Will lighten many a load,
And travelling at the speed of light,
Will return to you threefold,

We are joined through sisterhood.
And generations of women gone before,
We are as individual as the sun and moon,
But tempered of the same fire,
Therefore we are as one,

For as surely as the Wheel does turn,
We cannot shed this ‘knowing’,
Our power is in our strengths combined,
We are Woman…

And in that word,
Are the ties with which we’re bound.

  1. Dogs are awesome and do so many great things for us, like bringing you and your friend together. My dogs have given me so many great memories and I’m thankful for everyday that they are around! Hope you had a Happy New Year!

  2. Dogs have the amazing ability of bringing complete strangers together al the time. And these strangers always have a common ground on conversation, friendship, help and so much more. My dogs always enrich my life:)

  3. Such a gorgeous post! I’ve always found I connect with other dog lovers on a much deeper level than I ever have managed with anybody else… we just ‘know’

  4. I liked what you said about friendship between dog lovers: “The friendships that develop between people who love dogs is something that can’t be replaced.” I have come to find this to be very true indeed! I usually don’t bother connecting with people who don’t connect with my dogs.
