In Memory of My Sweet Chow Chow Wrongway

The time came that after over 14 years of loyal devoted friendship, my old guy passed away on the 20th. It's so heartbreaking ~ but I will always get to keep with me the memories and faithfulness and love that this old dog had for me and my family.

Wrongway's mom, Ginger, passed away just over a year ago, his dad Grunger, passed away about 9 years ago. Wrongway was from a litter born right here at home, where both his mom and dad lived. He was born breech, hence his "strange name". I showed him for about 4 years, he earned 11 points towards his Championship when his show career ended as a result of an injury to his ear. So... he has hung around, being the "Master Of The House" & ... ever since.

We'll miss you "old Man" ..

He leaves his animal friends, Sally and Nala, behind.

Beautiful Clematis

Wow! Is this just Beautiful or what??? I planted 4 Twinkle White Clematis plants near the pond area in the front part of our property -some 15 or so years ago! Each spring I get a dazzling display that has crept 40 -to- 50 feet into the air and it grows and catches the branches of the Vine Maples and Alders. I thought I'd share the Beauty!!
