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

great idea

14+ great idea BUT I cant seem to do it right now...my eyes are flooded with tears!

It's ok Winston. It isn't Oct yet and this has to be approved by Marko. I know what you mean. I have been thinking a lot lately about my boy and Bandit and Li'l Momma too with all the other losses. I thought this may be a fitting tribute to so many we have loved and lost.

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!

Exactly what Winston said....tears flooding eyes, but it's a wonderful idea....and I will participate.

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.

Thank you Marko. I in no way wanted to hurt anyone. I feel along with the pain there is healing. For all of us.

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+.

with good reason Marko , this is still so soon for you.

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".

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..

That's what I figured but Rgeurts explained it so much better than me.

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 .
