Gone But Not Forgotten – Weekly Photo Challenge

IMGP0227-001Cubby, 1995-2007

IMGP0469Kelly, 1995 -2006

Cubby and Kelly were rescued in South Africa, travelled with us to Germany, then to England and then to Spain where they ended their days.  Cubby was a good dog, always anxious to please.  Kelly was a dog good at making you anxious, and getting you to try to please her.  🙂

And finally:


Another foster dog, who hopefully found someone with limitless energy, low sleep requirements, high worktops, and lockable cupboards.  🙂

This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge was ‘Gone But Not Forgotten’.  To see other interpretations of the prompt, please click on the link.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    We can t forget them…never 😦


  2. This hits so close to home for me, Sandra, as you know. Oh your sweet Cubby and Kelly, I can see what loved members of the family they were. And fosters always leave an imprint on our hearts. XXX

      I know Barbara; I hope you’re coming to terms with your loss. I still miss Cubby and Kelly, I still wonder about Beau and Fleur. How we expose ourselves, hey? xx


      • I am, Sandra, today has just been one of those days when he’s been on my mind more than usual. The vet office sent a condolence card and in it the techs wrote such loving words. So now I am a bit of a wreck which I know you understand.

  3. Our minds are working on similar paths this week, Sandra, although I went with a horse, not our foster dogs.

  6. Bless you for fostering dogs 🙂


  7. Sandra, I’ve seen a lot of pets come and go, and it’s never easy. Well done. — Susan


    • Sandra says:

      There’s a price to pay for the joy they bring, I guess, Susan. Our life style at the moment precludes us from involving ourselves, but I look forward to the day… 🙂


  8. Friends with their own personalities. I love your post, Sandra.

    Hi Sandra, I came here through Janet’s blog and so glad to have found another animal lover! Cubby and Kelly are gorgeous and I’m sure they are still missed; gone but not forgotten. It’s never easy though, but we do have our memories to fall back on – eventually.
    You must wonder about the foster dogs, I would find it hard to foster, I’d want to keep them all!


    • Sandra says:

      Hi Barb, thanks for taking the trouble to visit. Animals find a special place in our hearts, and it’s not always easy to reconcile the joy of letting them into our lives with the pain of watching them leave. Fostering too can bring its own kind of heartache, but it’s always tempered with positivity when you see them going off to their new lives. You can’t help but wonder what becomes of them though. It would be nice, as you say, if you could keep them all. Thanks for dropping by.

I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
