pet pampering

to treat with extreme or excessive care and attention;

pampered their guests

pamper a pet.

***

I guess my first pet pampering came about during the 1990s

when Brandy’s eye was infected and he required

six weeks of tender loving care to have it heal.

 

Since moving from the farm each pooch has

its own warm newly built kennel.

 This is Taji’s kennel.

 Candi was visiting and no doubt was responsible

for dragging the blanker outside.

 

I though Maggie was being pampered when MGW purchased a coat.

Since then both Candi and Taji have been provided with one each.

And finally, even though the dogs have their paddle pool of water,

as soon as the weather warms up, MGW takes a bucket of water

and sprinkles it over them to cool them.

That, is really pampering.

Happy

Laughing at a quip.

I always thought these windows

lent a sad demeanour to this old house.

Perhaps they knew the fate of the house.

It no  longer exists.

****

Finally, I have no known relatives who

perished on World War I Battlefields,

however, on more than one occasion

I found myself taking deep breaths

to suppress tears as I contemplated

the loss of life two World Wars

have inflicted on our planet.

I created this image of the

Thiepval Military Cemetery

for another challenge.

I often wonder if there are

unseen guardians at each cemetery.

 

 

The wall at the back of Belgium’s

Tyne-Cot Cemetery,

contains the names of 35,000 soldiers

who have no known grave.

This is the overflow from

Menin Gate at Ypres,

where another 54,000 names

are inscribed

Nearly a decade ago Fromelles’ mass graves

were discovered. 

From these six graves

250 Australian and British Soldiers…

 

…were exhumed and re-interred in the

Fromelles Military Cemetery.

One of MGW’s relatives is among

those resting peacefully at Fromelles.
