“We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults. Heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment.”
A special journey back in time as this image was created. This is the only image I have ever seen that is so remarkably a look alike for my old boy Chance, who parted my company to the land of the Dancing Lights a little over two years ago. Chance came to me as a pup, rescued from certain death, with blue eyes, unusual for a Newfoundland. He retained those blue eyes until the age of two, when they suddenly turned brown! A wonderful, kind, loving and wise dog, all 160 pounds of him! I miss you Chance!
