Rick and I headed to the grocery store this morning – before the storm and I had to stop at the Village Store, my favorite thrift store. It’s been over 2 weeks since I’ve been there – just think of the treasures I’ve missed out on! I came across this picture.
The picture is a very bad photo – extremely blurry – of a small terrier dog with a harness on sitting there looking up adorably at the camera. It has been enlarged – thus the blurriness-and professionally framed by a frame shop in Decorah, IA called The Perfect Edge. I paid $2.00 for it and I imagine the story goes something like this. The little dog was a beloved pet of an older couple who are now also gone and their household goods were brought to the Village Store. The little dog meant the world to the couple – was loved and cherished and this was the only photo they had of their beloved terrier.
I fell in love with this little dog and will honor his or her memory by hanging the photo in my home with my other dog photos. I hope the owners will somehow know that someone else is cherishing the little dog’s photo. If there is anyone out there reading this who might recognize this dog, please use the comment section to tell me the circumstances of the photo.
Here is another dog picture I bought at a thrift store years ago – it was original artwork and I tracked down the artist. Long story but very fun!
