Super timing - great panning! I think she likes to run ~smile~. #8162455

Graham Robards level-addict 11/24/2009 6:16:03 AM

Thank you so very much for your kind words Dominick and Bonnie, we apprecialte them more than you know.

I was practising panning Bonnie, I took this shot about five years ago I think.

Teena loved to run, she died two months ago sadly at the tender age of six.

Best wishes .. ~Pat #8162512

I love her "widdle" legs. :) Your wonderful image of her today is such an honor to her remembrance. Sis, something special happened at my house this afternoon. Dare I tell you? I was on the phone to a BPer!!!! When a huge truck pulled up with a crane on top to clip the CITY OWNED trees at our house.

In the front seat of the big truck was the cutest Jack Russell that looked JUST LIKE TEENA. I guess they bring her on their ROUTE?! I stood there thinking only of you and Teena and Fangy and our club plus our moments that our lives together touched when she was here.

I will include a shot here. I hope you can see her there! I feel like Teena was here today. It made me feel so happy. I miss her too, Sis. I do.

Love, Laura #8169366

Graham Robards level-addict 11/27/2009 8:46:39 PM

Hi there little sister, I believe they come back and give us a sign. On Teena's birthday I happened to type our name into the search engines and this image came up. It was in our old gallery that went to God.

I nearly fell over, she said "wait for me"! And now she has been to see Fangy in Canada, how sweet!

I took this photo five years ago of Teena to the rescue ta dah! Was practising shutter speed and she was like a rat up a drainpipe. Crikey did I need to pan quickly compared to Bo. Effects added in Dreamsuite, I fancy this shot....! Greyhounds aren't the only dogs who gallop at full speed ahead! Jack Russells can too even with such widdle legs. ~Pat
