Ciao. I'd walk right up to Heaven and bring Camilla, Heidi, Tito, Angelina.... home again.
vz-nostalgia: Gosh, Stef. Do you run a dog lab or something? smile

Only in England I saw such an Animal cemetery with so moving- dear epitaphs ans some clumpsy poetry- often animals seem to be loved quite more than human beings! I' m afraid the bulldog has been fedded up too richly by his "Frauchen"/"Herrchen" and...! A lovely picture in the sepia toning of deep sorrow- but your pic gave me such a smile onto my face!
vz-nostalgia: Well, apparently the trend finally made it overseas, Philine. smile
It's sin to say, but I laughed my butt off, when I saw this. smile

You obviously have nothing to worry about there Viktor. Obviously heartfelt words, but way too sentimental for me!

vz-nostalgia: The competition gets though in the art of wordcrafting, Ingrid. smile

It reads like the sort of verse found in greetings cards.
vz-nostalgia: Really? Who would ever buy a card with a poetry like this one? Not even if you pay me, I would not take it. smile

Our beloved shar pei. I wonder if they still remember him/her.

The poetry business has some strong competition.
vz-nostalgia: I'm sure they do. The little grave is on their front yard, right at the pathway, so they see it every time they walk toward their home.

The competition... yes sir, you got to stay alert and always hone your verbal skills. smile

Sigh. Do pets roll over in their graves, Viktor?
vz-nostalgia: I have no idea, Ginnie. I'll finance, if you want to conduct an experiment. smile

A lousy poem but a great picture. Go figure... smile
vz-nostalgia: OK, let's go and try to figure, Larry. smile I think we'll fail without a bottle of whiskey. smile
I just wonder what the story is behind this...
vz-nostalgia: I guess there is one, but we'll never know. Wanna try to make one, Chris? I can start and you will finish.
"No one has seen much of this woman. She rarely left her huge house at teh end of the street. She was old and ugly, and no one liked her, except for her old ugly dog..."
Your turn, Sir. smile
Camilla, Tito, Heidi were my dogs, Angelina a sweet cat.
vz-nostalgia: What happened to them, did they all die, Stef?

Shucks, VZ...I am surprised you were sufficiently impressed with this bit of kitsch to give it such publicity!
vz-nostalgia: I often impressed with raw emotions, Ray. That goes beyond photography. smile
A great circumstance through for me.

Your framing is great Viktor.
vz-nostalgia: I learned the art of framing in school, Remi. smile Besides, my dad was a good carpenter. smile
Yes, all died.
vz-nostalgia: Of gosh. There must be something in food, or you have a bad karma, Stef. smile
Have you read "The Loved One" by Evelyn Waugh? This image brings it all back for me smile
vz-nostalgia: No, I haven't read this one, pixie. I'll check my neighborhood library and let you know. Deal? smile

Viktor - I agree that this is a clumsy sentiment - I've seen it before and it just makes me shake my head. I have owned dogs my whole life and held many of them as they passed away.So I can appreciate the grief, however.... as someone who believes in Heaven I am less regretful than jealous! The idea of finding a way to extract a loved one from a place of eternal bliss is a silly one to be sure !!! To me this is one of the most selfish expressions you'll find!!

Anyway good shot as always!
vz-nostalgia: What an unusual thought, Lee. How in the world I missed it! To extract a loved one from Heaven back to Hell of Earth is very selfish indeed. Brilliant thought.

yes, very hokey - until you miss someone unbearably
vz-nostalgia: Did you miss someone unbearably, Cathy?
