    Spike

    I refer to Spike from time to time. He is my boy that I had pts with dementia, really sad as he was still sound in wind, limb and teeth at 17. Most of my pre-digital photos are in a big box in the roofspace, so I haven't been able to show him off, but the other day I was looking for the town plan when I came across his advert from an Our Dogs Annual, 1988 I think. Not a brilliant scan, but here he is!

    ps. He didn't have an S shaped tail - that was a stray gust of wind. You never knew what you would get till the film was developed!

    He will have definitely won people over, what a handsome chap !
    Once you start looking through boxes of photographs from the last it’s easy to get distracted and before you know it you have spent much more time looking at them that was planned.
    Happy & sad memories !

    I have been dismantling old photo frames today - so I'm afraid these are a bit tatty.

    This is Spike again.

    This was marked 1981 - It feels like a different lifetime!

    Lovely pictures of such beautiful dogs - and the horse of course! :)

    I actually got Amit to fetch my box of photographs down from on top of the cupboard where it was, but as yet I have not had the courage to open it even though the scud tape that was holding it together is half off now.

    I daren't open my big box either. Photos evoke so many memories, and not all of them are happy ones. I don't like having to look at myself either

    Yes. My first pair were 2nd hand, and were breeches - with laces - and plenty of growing room, hmm. Mum didn't know any better, and I could curl up with embarrassment when I think of the photos she took in those days. I don't think I will be posting those anywhere!
