The Dog on My Blog

For my gardening and blogging friends - just to let you know that Amur, 
whose image you see in the blog's header picture, 
transferred his garden helper's duties to Kenai, our young shepherd, 
and joined our first shepherd, Julik, somewhere in different world.

I posted this picture on Instagram in May:
"Habit? Loyalty? Love?
He is old, he is thin, he is deaf, he is incontinent, he drags his back paws,
he scoots often, but he still looks for me, follows me to the garden
and then, lies down nearby."

Farewell my Friend

  1. Condolences, Tatyana, on the loss of your beloved pet. They truly become a member of the family and will be missed.

  2. Tatyana, so sad to lose your beloved dogfriend. Shepherds are such a clever and loyal dogs to their owners, it's nice his garden duties will be continued by Kenai, so he can rest in piece.

  3. Tatyana, I have enjoyed your pups on your blog for years. So very sorry. <3

  4. So sorry to hear that your beautiful Amur not with you anymore, it was great to see him in many of your pictures and you have many memories of him in so many of your posts. And now he joined Julik(wearing dark sunglasses as in your pictures) and they both shared your love and your life forever. I am playing an old waltz "The waves of Amur" to remember your dear friend and companion. Sending you and family Love and Light and Peace...
