Constant Companion

Our family is very very lucky...we have the bestest dog in the whole world ;)

Our precious little dog has not been in the best of health lately. He has struggled really badly with the heat of Summer, and there were a couple of times that we thought we might have lost him :(  Clancy is going on 14 years old this year, so each day that he is with us is a blessing.

I took this photo of Merryn and Clancy a while back. She has never known life without him, and he has endured every phase of her childhood so far with such patience...from the fur-pulling and the piggyback rides to the pretty bows around his neck...poor puppy!

I've used some Echo Park Dots and Stripes for the background (favourite!!) , along with some Crate Paper from various lines, and AC Thickers. The word bubble is from a Studio Calico kit.

Thanks so much for visiting, and please leave me a comment so I can visit you back ;)

Beautiful photo and layout. I have a King Charles cavalier x he is 10 yrs old, still active and very much a part of our lives. Wishing you all the best with him. :-))))

WOW, this layout is soooo pretty. I love the colors/paper you used together for this.

I feel the same way about our dog too, still just a baby but I treasure each day with him.

Suzi, this is so lovely... great papers & layout... yes our pets sure do become very much part of the family. x

Oh Suz, it can be so hard watching them get old and worrying about "what's next". So precious that Merryn has known him all her life though. I love the layout you chose for your little friend, great work!

Love these photos and the way you've put it all together. Clancy looks like a real sweetheart.
