one hundred

This is my one hundredth post on Finding Sirius. I've been trying to write this entry for the last hour. I wanted to write something meaningful and poignant about one hundred posts.



But if I were to strip it down to the bare bones...if I were to get right to the heart of it....at the center of one hundred posts is the love of a dog. Just as simple that.



And it does not get more meaningful nor more poignant than that.



So here's to one hundred, Sophie....I may have written the words, but you were the inspiration

Happy One Hundred - great post - it says so much is so few words. Nothing like the love of a furpal.

Congratulations on finding each other.

Congrats on your 100th! I am so glad you found me, so I could find you too! You are such a joy, as is Sophie! You make one heck of a team!
Chance would love to run and romp with another Border Collie, if only it were possible..they would have a blast!
I really like the photo of Sophies Paw..makes Chances paws look shaggy. I hesitate to trim him too close in the winter..but once the mud gets the best of me..I will get out the scissors:)

Congratulations and Happy 100th, Andrea!
With Sophie as inspiration, how could you not um.... feel inspired!

Give that beautiful girl a kiss for me and tell her to keep up the good work!
Her joy for life and your fantastic writing make for a very powerful combination... and we benefit from that blessing!

* Big hugs*

Congrats on 100 posts! These are wonderful pics of your inspiration. I'm glad you stopped to visit and got to see my niece's dog. I figured you would like his looks! He's a rescue and is loved very much. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

As I lay here with two dogs at my feet, and now one lifting my hand off my mouse to pet her as I try to type this, I understand.

In the field today watching the dogs run and Minky leaping into the air for her frisbee, life seemed to stop for a few moments and just give me peace and joy. The sky was filled with impending storm clouds and the breeze was blowing cool. I wouldn't have been out there but for the dogs. God is good.

Congrats on the accomplishment of 100 posts friend. :) (((hugs)))
