Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

Last week we lost our 12 year old English Springer Spaniel (Barney). Age got the best of him and we had him put to sleep. This is on of my favorite photos of him. Our son Tim had called from Iraq and said he was having a hard time sleeping. What he didn't tell is that he had hit an IED with his military vehicle. I sent Tim the photo and he said he put it over his bed and it helped him sleep. Good bye old friend, we will miss you.

    It's sad that our beloved animals do not have longer lives, it is heart wrenching to loose them. We have had several dogs and cats that we loved and they parted from our lives was to soon. This portrait of Barney is beautiful and a great tribute to him.
