I've been out of the blogging loop for the last week or so. I've been keeping up with reading other blogs and commenting but haven't done such a good job at blogging myself. I figured the best way to try and get back in was to not skip another day and what better day to figure it out but Friday Photo Flashback. Alicia started this meme for all of us that have old pictures scanned into our computers..head over to her blog and join in on the fun.
This was my dog,Midnight when I was little. We got him when I was five years old and my world revolved around this dog as I got older. As I think back it makes me incredibly sad that he isn't with me anymore. He passed away when I was 21 and I still to this day remember the phone call from my dad telling me that he was gone. I remember it being one of the single worst days of my entire life. He was my best friend and I absolutely adored him...I didn't have a bad life...I had what I needed and I had parents that cared about me. However growing up with parents that are divorced and going back and forth from house to house is not the easiest thing in the world. Midnight made it easier for me...I always had him. The first picture of him is how I vividly remember him...he always had a yellow tennis ball in his mouth...he adored balls!!!! We used to say that if you threw one off the edge of the Grand Canyon then he would chase it. He actually lost one of his eyes when he got hit with a golf ball when he was older and even then he still would chase one around the yard anytime of day or night.
