FLORA, MY DEAR FRIEND

This week's Photo Friday theme is Friend, so here is my great companion and lovely friend Flora!



Flora was born in 1997 and was rescued by my daughter Sofia at the Universidade Estadual Paulista, in Rio Claro's city. Her mother was a stray dog.



Flora loves a piece of meat

Flora enjoys to stroll around Enseada Azul with my husband Carlos


Since she was a puppy she loves to play with balls



Photos by Sonia and Carlos Mascaro

You can see another Flora's photos here and at Modern Pooch

  9. Well, it looks enough like the other one that I don't know the difference, except I know it is another picture because you told me. This is a great photo, too! Tou and Flora look so very content, and that is as it should be, isn't it? Lovely, dear Sonia.

    GREAT pics of Flora--such a cutie. I have 3 dear little friends also--2 miniature schnauzers: Outlaw Jesse Lobo & Scrappy Doobie & a schnauzer-corgi mix: Bubba Zane Grey. They are known as Lobo, Scrappy, & Zane. They are my "little boys", great fun, great companions, the loves of my life.

  26. Sonia, estou feliz que a Flora já esteja legal e que tudo tenha corrido bem.
    Adoro animais, muitas vezes prefiro até que os humanos: são sinceros, leais, bons e não mentem.
    Felicidades pra Flora !!!
    Parabés e um pronto restabelecimento pra ela !

  27. Sonia, o Eduardo é sensacional...
    Alguém já tinha dado a pista de quem seria, tomando por base o tipo de penteado/corte de seus cabelos. Uma gata, hein?

    Você mulheres são privilegiadas. Os seus cabelos e simpatia continuam os mesmos.
    Quanto aos meus, foram se aposentando aos poucos...

    Um abraço pra Flora...
    Outro para você. Hoje especialmente pelo Dia Internacional da Mulher.
    Abraços

  28. Sonia. Mesmo eu sendo uma rabujenta assumida, achei a Flora muito simpática e vou colocar a foto dela lá na minha casinha, tá bem?
    Minha dona anda meio relapsa, não atualiza muito o blog. Mas vou dar uns daqueles meus latidos assustadores e cobrar dela.
    Seu blog é muito bacana e internacional! Que inveja!

  29. That's great that you and Sofia rescued Flora - I think dogs somehow know this and are grateful in their own way.
