6th page 6th photo tag

my friend brian tagged me, rules are simple: go to the sixth page of your flickr stream, and post the sixth picture that’s listed, then tag six more people.

frontyard

i was a little concerned that i would end up w/ a not-so-interesting photo but was glad when i saw which one was the lucky tagged shot…

this is from the spring of 2005 and was taken by me in our frontyard in stamford, ct while i was playing fetch w/ our two dogs: teagan (2 y/o jack russell) and kirra (13 y/o lab mix) – a month after this shot kirra would pass suddenly from what amounted to organ failure due to old age, she was a great dog having come to us as a rescue @ 9 months old when we lived in socal, moved w/ us to texas and then on to connecticut – when we decided to bring teagan into our family as a puppy fresh off the boat from ireland, kirra welcomed her wholeheartedly and loved playing in the yard w/ her – that’s the story behind this photo…

as for my tags, picking folks who i think might enjoy this flickr fun & are bloggers ;)

  1. I did not think to start from the beginning but that makes total sense to me. As for Kirra’s rapid departure, it is shocking to their humans but probably much easier on her. Leo’s arrival date does seem like a tip of the hat from life itself.

  2. brian – i went from oldest forward to the 6th page from when i started – i have almost 9000 photos uploaded and do at atleast one new one a day – i felt like going to oldest forward was more interesting for me…

    kirra had a full life but she did pass very quickly and it was a shock especially for my youngest who was the same age as her – she passed on june 9th and our current lab leo was born on june 10th – life goes on :)

  3. Sad story about Kirra, but I am glad to know about her. And, what a great yard to play in. Teagan no doubt is making good use of the space.

    Mike. Upload more pictures. Six pages took you back to 2005?
