Sunday Challenge " Potluck"

This week's challenge is "Potluck" whatever was fun and or interesting. I don't think I got either but here goes. I never had time to get anything new, what I ended up with was pics that meant something to me good or bad. This first shot is a planting I did at the Cranbrook Golf Course I just love how well it turned out.

I picked this one because it makes me smile, how could you not.
And this one is a little interesting Golf balls from heaven....I think they come from the crows or a neighbor with a really long shot. I pick these up out of the horse pasture.


Shadow smiling, as it turns out it is a good thing this is on file because it is something we will never get to see again as Shadow had to be put down this month...



And again last but not least my sweet Sage. This is Sage on the rock that almost did her in. It has been almost two years since her horrible injury....she will never be OK but she gets by pretty good. Well guys I don't think I met this challenge but I'm tired and I wanted to put something on here. i will just have to try harder next week.I will try very hard to get back on here and see what you all came up with, have a great day, it's supposed to be beautiful here tomorrow and I'm going to take full advantage of it.

Sorry about Shadow! All the photos are lovely , but Sage on the rock is gorgeous,glad she came through her injuries .What happened?

Sandy said...

So sorry about Shadow. I know how hard that is. And it's a great photo of his smile! Love the photo of your cats and of Sage too! Very nice potluck photos.

Janice said...

This is in answer to Sherry's question about what happened to Sage...I will try to make it short. It was always my intention to do a post about it but at the time I was pretty raw and then time just slipped away.I was throwing a stick for sage and she crashed into the rock she is laying on. She started flipping over backwards and crying like she was dying, I thought she broke her back, she didn't but it took months of confinement and leashes.I won't get into my reaction to her injury but let me just say even talking about it now makes me cry. She now has a bump on both hips and a raised backbone about midway down her back. She runs around a lot still and does short rides with me but she will never be OK again.

Sorry Janice to raise an old wound. Poor Sage! Glad she recovered , hug that beautiful girl for me ! and hope she is careful with her body and your tender heart in the future

Oh no. How sad about Shadow. Rest in peace faithful friend.

I'm so sorry that Sage was injured in such a horrible way. I can't even imagine what was going through your mind. Sounds like she's doing better now, though, and she has the best home ever with you. She sure is a pretty girl, too.

That first photo is just beautiful! What a stunning arrangement you created. You have serious talent.

Have you taken Sage to an animal chiropricator? Our daughter's oldest rottweiller was hurt by a car and the animal chiropractor got Balou walking again and running.

Yes Linda Sage has been to an Animal Chiropractor, she was treated for about a year, once a week. I believe it made a big difference as to her recovery.
