A tribute to "Dirt Road Dogs"

A dear friend of mine was kind enough to share her beautiful blog with me. These were a few of many pictures that she has taken that really touches my heart. Her photo album along with the words and music she has chosen are a masterpiece.
Do your soul a favor and take a visit. I promise you won't be disappointed. Let me know if it brings a sweet tear to your eye! I could let that music play for hours in the background.

What beautiful photos, just what I needed to see and hear at the end of a long week.

I had just read a piece on why people don't want to adopt black dogs, so sad when they have so much to give.

Rowing and Sowing said...

Oh my goodness :) That was so nice of you to feature me on your blog. You are a dear friend of mine, too, and I look so forward to catching up here and reading about your "stuff" going on AND (on top of that) being back with the LOVE of my LIFE! NO, Jimmy! Not YOU! hehehe :) It's so good to see you. Give the gals a hug from me.

Jan, it's nice to meet you. The plight of unwanted black dogs is indeed very sad. I've not tried intentionally to find black ones (it just happened to work out that way.)

You all have a great night!

Awwwww -- they're so lovely! I miss having a dog so much right now. You're making my eyes go moist. Damn you.

I'm sure my D.R.D. gal will just love your wonderful blog. I had no idea that black dogs were the least adopted? That's my favorite color for a dog.......well, black & white like the Boston Terriers ...te he he!!!

Rowing & Sowing...AKA D.R.D. Gal
You've laid your "Healing Hands" on me!....I love that song!

Thanks....I'm glad that I'm not the only one who's eyes get moist visiting her blog.

Since this is the first time I've worn mascara in about 8 years I'll save it for later. Those photos are great, nothing like a service dog to make you feel humble.

Rowing and Sowing said...

I just sat down to the computer (been gone most of day). It's nice to meet you all! Thanks for the kindness. I'm looking forward to checking out your blogs. And yes, Jimmy - that song, Healing Hands by Marc Cohn is just doggone awesome :) And ya know... well - it's such a long story, I'll try to make it as short as possible without getting too mushy or too sad, but, it took a long long time to begin to heal from the loss of my beloved "gang", and one thing I learned is - our best friends might leave our lives, but they never ever die. They are always there - right in there in our hearts, deeply.

OK... I won't get too heavy (The Kleenex box is off limits tonight.)


Everyone have a great evening!

Hi Uncivil!!
Rowing and Sowing gave me a link to your bolg and I LOVE it!! These are the kind of blogs I absolutely love to read!
Please come and visit me! I will be back here, I saved you to my favorites..:)

Uncivil said...

A woman with runny mascara is a scary thing!LOL

I've always loved your choices of music, and your way with critters. Good to see you back in the blogosphere shug.


Your Poco & Susie are adorable and I just love all the horse photos and the history that goes with it.
I have a friend who has quarter horses, and I'll have to post some pics.
I put your link on my side bar! Thanks for visiting and come back often.

Okay, so I came home a little late and a little drunk so perhaps I still have on a little mascara. I read rowing and sowing, and it's not a pretty sight.
Dirt Road Dogs. A good name for a band.

Hey, Jimbo!
I just thought I'd pop by and check in on you, Ab & Em...and what a wonderful surprise it was to see this post!

Those doggies are beautiful! I'm off to check out your friend's blog now :)

I'm back! OH MY GOODNESS!!! I wanted to leave a comment for your friend at Rowing and Sowing, but couldn't :( Her blog is AMAZING! Her photographs are magnificent and her words are so touching.

I knew it would be a great blog when I saw the Robert Frost quote at the top of the blog. I carried that poem in my wallet for years (ever since high school).

Uncivil said...

You came home "a little late and a little drunk" and you were wearing mascara?.....hmmmmmmmm.......and how was your date?

Yes, she is a real sweetheart southern girl. She said she can't handle the comment section quite yet.
I'll let her explain here on my blog if she likes, or I'll be glad to forward her any messages that my blogger buddies would like to pass along.

I had a wild day and I've got some good blog fodder that I'm getting ready to post!
Ab & Em are getting ready to do a "spin off" on the "Dirt Road Dog" theme!
I can't resist it!!!!
