Week 2 / 52

This is my submission for M4H 52, week 2.

Our old doggie, Scotty, became suddenly sick 1 1/2 wks ago, I think he had a stroke.  I took this shot of our new puppy, Bear, sitting by Scotty.  Bear new Scotty was sick, and just wanted to stay with him.

It's not a great shot, technical-wise, but it captured a bittersweet moment in our 'life' last week.

And I love her reason for doing the Give-A-Way. What a testimony!

I sure do hope I win, but hey, even if I don't, I'll be ok ;-)
