This was Snickers, my loyal companion on many hikes, trips and Adventures. I miss her. She was extremely loyal and protective and had a sense of when she was most needed. I can't tell you the number of times Snick was just the cure for the problem situation I would find myself in. Losing her to old age has kept me from finding another pet. Her lose is still with me.
The brown coat in the foreground was a suede jacket that I always wore during cold months when Snick and I headed out. The combination is a powerful emotional trigger. But that’s what I love about photography. Despite my heart ache, I have joy in remembering.
