Dog of the Day

“Be the person your dog thinks you are”… Chris Rudolph

I did not know Chris Rudolph, but I dedicate this post to him, and this quote of his could not be more a more perfect way to go through life. Chris lost his life recently in a fatal avalanche at Stevens Pass, WA. I read of this news through a posting of some of his closest friends. They said he was one of the kindest, most generous, talented people they knew… in full support of anything positive, brave or inspired. I am quite sure I would have loved Chris Rudolph as much as they do…

His story, and the words of his friends touched me deeply… I’m not even sure why, but it did. So I would like to send some love his way!! One of Chris’ closest friends wrote this at his memorial:

“We’re left with the knowledge that we have a small window of opportunity in this life to forge friendships, to inspire, to live and to love.”

    i love that quote at the top! and the photo of course 🙂

  2. Very touching, Michael… I believe that we are always touched by people’s ‘sincerity’ when they express their true feelings; makes us look inwards, so to speak, at our own humanity… 😉
    Love that pooch pic and the quote… I can almost hear him saying.. “Ommmmmmmm” 😉

    A really delightful capture – I love the sense of quiet contemplation… thank you for sharing…
    Best wishes,
    Susie 🙂

    • that’s my boy Manu and his “go to” pose almost every time I point the camera his way. He could be running around like crazy, then I go to shoot, and he pretends to dose off almost immediately… so I thought i would make the most of his meditative-like moment

        How funny – they’re such individuals, aren’t they?! Manu’s an absolute sweetiepie – he must give you lots of pleasure! I took the liberty of sharing this post earlier on my Facebook page to spread the love of all things Manu!
        Best wishes,
        Susie 🙂

  6. that’s very kind of you Susie, thanks… you will find many things Manu throughout my blog and FB photo page… including today’s post… be well, MB
