My Beautiful Gentle Giant.

This is my dog Uuphoo..I didn't name her!!..LOL She was such a sweetheart.. she passed away in the fall of 2004 a week after I lost my grand mother.. It was a tough month that month.. She lived to be almost 10 yrs. The vet said that she had lived a good long life..I had to make the dreadful decision to have her put down. Her stomach had flipped and she was agony.. The vet said that I had made the right choice.. I miss her dearly..
Here's close up her beautiful face..she was so soft.. and didn't drool at all, ever..
my BFF had made a bandana for her with sunflower print fabric, so thats where I got the sunflowers from, plus I thought that sunflowers are big and beautiful, just like she was..
I love this photo of her.. we were all sledding and we had to tie her up cause we were afraid she would get run over..she wasn't very happy about it.. she wanted to play along with all the kids..
The title to the page.. "Gentle giant!"..cause thats what she was.. her bark was definitely worse than her bite..
I added lady bugs, cause she was such a prima lady and snails cause she was never in a hurry..
I never hand journal cause I never know what to say.. but, this time I did want to add a little bit me into this layout. She was my beautiful girl..
