October 2010 photo challenge - Remembering pets that have passed on
In light of all of our losses, recent and past, I would like to propose a slight twist to the monthly challenge. I would like us to post pics of our gone, but never forgotten, furries. I feel it is a fitting tribute at this time.
What a great idea.
What a wonderful idea
14+ great idea BUT I cant seem to do it right now...my eyes are flooded with tears!
14+ only did this so she could see us all cry again! I'm with you Winston, I get teary eyed very easily these days. But I have great memories of my old babies.
It has been a difficult past few months for many members here but, I think it's a wonderful idea to honor and share the memories of our past companions.
Oh I dont disagree at all I am just too emotional.....it is a fitting tribute!
If it is the idea with the most support (and i hope it is) it will become October's challenge.
Even for those members that have not lost a pet, they could post pics of pets that were meaningful to them that belonged to other people (so long as they have their permission).
Thx for the wonderful suggestion 14+
14+,good idea,i was just thinking today,that i would like to post some pics of my rocky,from kitten-hood,to the end.
sure i'll cry,cry for all the babies we lost in the last while
but it will be a way to honor their memory and the good times.
I agree. It will be painful for some (including myself) but it might also be cathartic and it will be a wonderful tribute to many many pets and hopefully bring back some loving memories. (Just call me Mr. mush today )
Again, beautiful suggestion 14+.
I think it's a wonderful idea 14+.
And isn't October call the month of the deads ? To celebrate them ? I think I heard that somewhere .... because of how Halloween came to be a "holiday".
I think it's a great idea and would love to participate in the October challenge. Count me in.
Halloween=All Hallows Eve. There are many different versions, one is this:
It is commonly linked to the Feast of Samhain (the end of summer) on Oct. 31, to honor the dead
It's my favorite holiday.
I too think it's a great idea,,Winston and anyone else that it might be abit too much for right now,,if you'd like let me or one of the others know and we can find a picture and post it for you..
Great idea, I'm in.
I too agree it would be a good idea.
I love all my past and present babies so much. It would be great to put up a picture of them.
Thanks for the suggestion 14+.
You explained it perfectly:
"I would like us to post pics of our gone, but never forgotten, furries. I feel it is a fitting tribute at this time."
I would be honored to participate .
Thanks for the amazing suggestion 14+ and I see you have already posted first. beautiful memories
Assumptions do nothing but make an ass out of u and me.
We can stick our heads in the sand for only so long before it starts choking us. Face it folks. The pet population is bad ALL OVER THE WORLD!
