A tribute to all of our wonderful pets...

When I sent out the invite for pet pictures, I had no idea so many wonderful pictures would come flowing my way. It was a very special creative project to be able to see all of your beautiful fur-babies come to life through photography. I would have liked to have posted the pictures much larger, but I think it would have taken all afternoon - so I made the images small, but hope you will click on each one to see the larger version and to really see the soul inside. These pets are amazing and isn't it even more amazing what they have brought and added to our families? I hope you will enjoy this tribute to some amazing "kids". Hugs and love - Christie

Bummer, I can't believe I missed out on the tribute:) I am never going to take a blogging break again. You just miss out on too much fun stuff. Loved seeing all those cute furry friends though especially of dear beloved Zeus. I promise I won't tell Lilly and Charlotte...they would just be mad at me;)
