Q: Why does JPGMAG drag the competitions on so much.

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

This was our family dog, Buster. In this photo he was resting his cancer riddled body on the sofa, when the Sun came through the window, I knew this was a moment I had to capture.

Native Americans have a saying about Dog and Man.

When the Earth was young , the Great Spirit saw that man was different from the other animals. So the Great Spirit divided the animal kingdom with a great chasm, Man on one side and the rest of the animals on the other. The chasm grew wider and wider but before the divide became to wide and at the last moment Dog jumped and stood next to man.

Buster was the perfect dog and he is missed.

    Lighting gives this photo an almost "embryonic'' feel. Very unique...not just another"cute"puppy picture.

    This is the most beautiful picture. A tribute to a very special friend who must move on-- to Rainbow bridge. May he be remembered and missed and be there to meet you when you too- as we all must -one day leave. Let Buster know my special friend Cinder also left me- one year later. RIP sweet Buster.
    This is a wonderful picture.
