It's a bit faint, but it's the first of the season and it's a sweet summer treat! What looks like a rainbow is actually a Sundog!
Rainbows remind me of pets who have passed away and you know how it is when you lose a dear sweet fur friend, it hurts for the longest time. I am really missing Tanna this summer, she died last November. I expect to see her basking in her favorite sunny spot where she would enjoy her daily doggie sauna (she was the original sundog, lol) or as she was in this photo laying under a shade tree while watching for a squirrel to chase. Her sunny spot is right next to the patio where I love to sit in my own favorite shady spot while reading or stitching away a gorgeous Minnesota summer day. You know, when I glance over to Tanna's spot I could swear that for a snip of a moment I see her napping there and I miss her.
Recently Tom and I watched the movie Marley and Me. I had already read the book and it was sad enough, but when we watched that movie we thought it was so stinking sad at the end ~ like losing Tanna all over again. Sigh. I had no idea the impact that movie would have...I dunno, I guess I wish I hadn't watched it. Sort of opened the wound again, ya know?
