First off I have to say a big THANK YOU to my dear friend Dina who made me this beautiful bracelet in memory of Norman. The love for Norman still keeps coming in and I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends that make me smile when the days are sad.

We are still in the polar vortex here in WI. Freezing cold snowy weather. So I dug into the archives for some more baby pictures of Norman just after we got him playing in the snow.

They claim we are going to have freezing weather though out February. So we will go back in time or so it will look like with baby Norman and John’s nephew in Sepia for our Sepia Saturday Blog Hop with Ruckus The Eskie.

John has twin nephews that were born in 1995, Brandon and Jordan. This is one of them holding baby Norman Christmas of 2000. I don’t know which one this is and at this years Christmas I asked John’s sister Kathy, her husband Gary, Grandma, the twin boys and their sister Becca which one this was and no one really knew. They thought Brandon but couldn’t be sure. I got a kick out of it!

Hope everyone has a great weekend and have a happy Sepia Saturday.

Today for Sepia Saturday I am going with our host Ruckus The Eskies theme. Over at Ruckus’s blog you will see a beautiful sunset in sepia so I thought I would post up my sunrise pictures with Norman hunting in Saskatchewan 2009.

A HUNTING DOGS PRAYER

I thank Thee, Oh Lord, for the rivers, woods, and fields wherein lie the game birds I love to hunt. I thank Thee also for the men and women who protect and preserve wild life in all its forms so that future generations will have the healthful pleasures of hunting and fishing. My master means more than life or death to me and I pray for intelligence, ability, and strength to understand and execute his or hers commands and desires. May our companionship lead to complete understanding so that our moments will be the happiest of all. Help my master to comprehend that I will gladly give my life for them, be they millionaire or pauper. Their love and confidence is all I ask. I beseech you to guide him or her and protect them from thoughts, deeds, or actions which will disturb the faith of others in them. I want my master to be respected by their friends as I look up to them. The wag of my tail indicated the feelings of my heart and no blows, privation, or hunger will ever keep me from being happy when I hear my master’s voice or footsteps. When the curtains of death are about to close my active life, I pray Thee, Oh, God, that my master be near, their hand caressing my head as my eyelids close.

Where to Bury a Dog

But there is one best place to bury a dog. If you bury him in this spot, he will come to you when you call – come to you over the grim, dim frontiers of death and down the well remembered path to your side again.
And though you call a dozen living dogs to heel, they shall not growl at him nor resent his coming, for he belongs there. People may scoff at you, who see not the lightest blade of grass bend by his foot-fall, who hears no whimper, people who may never really have had a dog. Smile at them, for you shall know something that is hidden from them.

The one best place to bury a good dog is in the heart of his master.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Peace!
