Flower Photo: Rest In Peace Rose Bouquet

Pink Rose Bouquet Photo by Aquariann

Ogre's dog swept me off my feet long before he could. Literally. Morris Johnson III (aka MoJo) was the chillest dog. He wasn't interested in fetch or any toys, for that matter - he lived to be petted by humans. I didn't see him jump on anyone ever again after our introduction, so he must have known right away that I'd become part of his family.

How MoJo made it to day 29 of a 30-day kill shelter without anyone else taking him home is beyond me. Ogre rescued him with less than 24 hours to spare and gave him 12 more wonderful years than he would have had at only 2 years old. Sadly, we had to bury him last Friday. My parents gave us a beautiful rose bouquet in sympathy.

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, please add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.
