The Kids by Michael Mitchener
The Kids, a photo by Michael Mitchener on Flickr.
I was sad to hear that Shelby, the beautiful border collie in the foreground of this picture, passed away recently. After a rough start in life, Shelby was fortunate to find a home where she was loved and cared for. While always a shy girl, Shelby provided a balance to her far from shy "brother" Max (also shown in this picture) and the two remained closer than close as the years went by.  Now with Shelby gone, it's going to be tough for Max and Shelby's family and friends to try to adjust to life without her but I hope they take some comfort in the many warm memories they have and the wonderful life they were able to provide her. We'll miss you Shelby.

Original Photo Caption: I attended a wedding on the banks of the Athabasca River in Jasper, Alberta where these two dogs were part of the wedding party. Max, the handsome mutt at the top of the frame, wore a tartan bowtie and Shelby, the beautiful, shy bordie collie in the foreground, wore a jade necklace. This picture was taken during the ceremony while the two dogs watched intently as their Mom and Dad took their vows.
