When staying at my sister’s house this last weekend, I found this photo hanging on the wall in the guest bedroom, and wasn’t I just delighted!
That is our Kobi in the foreground. I just could not believe how young he looked! To the right is his sister Maggie, and to his left Maggie’s littermate, Bear, who was my sister’s boy. The photo was taken in late 2001, which was the year Kobi had come to live with us. He would have been maybe a year old since it was taken in Autumn. Maggie and Bear looked so young too, and they would have been close to 2 years old.
I didn’t remember where the photo had been taken but my sister knew it was at Cole Pond, a favorite local hiking spot. It’s an easy hike to a beautiful pond and we used to go there quite often, but haven’t been for a while.
Also, notice the harness Kobi is wearing….one of the first types we tried to keep him from pulling (it didn’t work very well because I know several others came afterwards). And don’t they look so sweet in their bandanas?
Thanks for finding these, Sis! Both Maggie and Bear are gone now, and still greatly missed, so these are very special to us.

Oh, what a special treasure to come across! They all look like such sweet babies. And there’s nothing like a pup in a cute bandana!
It is a treasure. I’d forgotten I used to put bandanas on the dogs more too….these days Kobi acts like I’m torturing him when I put one on, so I guess I should have kept up the practice so he’d be more used to it now!
Just this morning I found some photos of dogs from years past, including one of Nosey the MinPin whgo became my moms 3rd child…it’s the only picture of him I have and it brought back so many memories
Oh, that is so great, I’m so glad you found that photo! That is very special.
Oh, I just love when old photos resurface! Such fond memories come with them! What a treasure!
It really is a treasure….something to be cherished from here on!

I’ve been doing a lot of looking through old photos – don’t you love when you find one you hadn’t seen, or had forgotten about. So lucky to have found those. They’re great!
Yes, the forgotten ones are absolutely the best!
I couldn’t help smiling! I love a good surprise. This is one of the reasons I take pictures of the dogs, to remember so many things I’d forget forever otherwise.
That is so true. I had forgotten that particular hike until I saw that photo, and then my sister still had to jog my memory! I have so many photo albums, boxes of pictures, etc., and sometimes I wonder why I have so many. Well, now I’m reminded of exactly why!
Memories like that are so precious.
They certainly are, Sage.

What nice photos that give good memories! We have photos of the ones that came before us around the house. The mom wants to always remember them. 🙂
Every single photo is precious, isn’t it? 🙂
We have photos of Mom’s previous furry kids around the house. They make her laugh and smile but she never wants to forget any of us! Glad you saw those photos!
Thanks, Emma, I am so glad too. We have photos around the house too, you are right that we don’t ever want to forget.

I always believe when you find an unexpected photo like that, they are communicating with you
That is a sweet thought, Caren. It almost seems like that might have been part of the reason it seemed so special when I saw it.
Mary Ruiz says
Thanks for sharing those memories
You’re welcome, Mary, I’m glad you enjoyed them!
Aw! Those are great pictures and it is always fun to see how big every dog has grown!
Thanks, Finn. You are right, it is so fun to see how they’ve grown!
Very cute. Always fun to find old photos, especially of our four-leggers. 🙂
Thanks, Donna. Makes me glad we always take a lot of photos!
