Yesterday was so much fun.
Eclipse in the United States.
Tucson had only a partial eclipse but it didn't matter it was wonderful.
With everything going on in my life I forgot to buy some glasses.
So I made a pinhole camera with two sheets of white paper.
Worked like a charm.
 winston is so excited !

 Son did not look but pointed his camera up to the sky.
The sun is always so bright in Tucson no one looks up at it.
Or should not.

 After I came inside I took a photo of the eclipse on my hand from the skylight.

                               Daughter's friend Steph took these wonderful photos in Michigan.

Local sushi, Total Eclipse of the Heart.


As always here is your pretty to start the week.

Granddaughter playing dress up.
Love the little toes peeking out.

It was a great day !

 The last Bark Box with thehamish name on it came.

 Another early morning sunrise.
Well, if I am up I might as well take a photo.


 As always here is your pretty to start the week.

Two blooms on a Cholla Cactus.
I like the flatness of this photo.

At the Emergency Hospital that we rushed thehamish to that last very early morning,
they said to us that they made a paw print for us that they would send later.
I assumed it would be a ink print like the Pet Cemetery gave us.
A package came in the mail and when I opened it...  a heart was inside.
It means so much for us to have both these little sweet footprints.


Thank You all for the cards and comments. 
You can never know what they all mean to me.

It makes me so happy to know my Little Square Black Dogs 
have touched so many people around the blog world.
They were wonderful, lovely, happy, sweet gud dugs.
I think I hear them walking about the home.
I have just started to read some blogs and comment, I hope to be back soon.
For for now I am just trying to catch up with my life.

cheers,  parsnip
woof !

So Daughter whipped out my cookbook and made me some.


Thursday afternoon sky.

Thank You all for the lovely letters, notes and comments the last few days.
I have cried buckets of tears and am very happy to know that the thehamish,  
has made so many people happy following his daily antics of a 
Little Square Black Dog.
He and his Watson where the best gud dugs and made my life so much better.

Just a few more photos of thehamish
usually with his touchstone Watson.
Some giggles and tears.
He was such a goofy little dog. Everything I wrote about him he did and more.
He was a hoot.

 Famous Two Headed Dog of Tucson.
Basket for one, but thehamish always cuddled in.

 Helping unpack.

 He loved to crawl under things.  He walked around with the pillow for some time.

 Love when he slept like this.

 Winston Churchill

 Square Dog Gardner.

 Right after his lens replacement.


 Squeezing in a basket for one Square Dog.


 He would always drop or kick the ball into the pool then fish it out.

 He like folded pillows.


Cabana boys.







I miss him so much.

cheers,  gayle
