Flora loved to take a walk with us...
Flora will be always in our hearts and in our memories.
We miss you so much dearest Flora!
Flora adorava passear conosco...
Flora estará sempre em nossos corações e em nossa memória.
Quantas saudades, querida Flora!

FLORA (3/9/1997 - 12/7/2011)


  1. Dear Sonia, sounds like you're having a Flora Day. I have Jordan and Rufus Days too. They're gone from around us but they're still in our hearts and our heads.

    I hope you're having a wonderful summer. Our sun has finally arrived. Maybe one day, you'll find another dog to enjoy all that beautiful space and more long walks with you :) Big hugs x

  2. Thanks for sharing those pictures of Flora!
    I love to see her again.
    Happy New Year!
    Kisses and hugs

  3. Ohhhh, look at Beautiful Sweet Flora....These are GREAT Pictures, Sonia....I know you miss her terribly, and I understand, my dear....Such a sweet sweet face....!

  4. Lindas fotos e a saudade ficará sempre!!!beijos,chica e lindo dia!

  5. Its nice see Flora once again in her different moods and what a way to start the new year on blog.

    I'm sure Flora must we watching this from up there with lots of Happiness, Joy and love in her heart.

  6. One thing I know for sure from seeing the photos of Flora is that Flora had a wonderful life with you. ♡

  7. Hello Flora - so nice to see you again!

    Sonia, I think it might be time for you and Carlos to have a new little friend to shower all your love upon.

  8. Nice shots. She was a wonderful dog - hold onto those memories.

  9. Sonia, the water is so clean and pure. It must be like your relationship with Flora.

  10. Sonia, the water is so clean and pure. It must be like your relationship with Flora.

  11. Oh Flora, in the fauna. What a lovely girl you are. And your tail is like a flag, with a white patch on top so everyone could see it wave.

  12. Love seeing Flora. Her sweetness is all around. Have a great weekend Sonia!

  13. we miss our guys so much when they're gone. such lovely pictures!

  14. What a lovely tribute to dear Flora!
    I'm sure she and Buster would have been really good pals if they had had the chance to meet.
    I quite understand how you must miss her so much.
    Sending lots of love your way
    Elizabeth and Buster

  15. Hi Sonia! I like to see Flora again, always so happy and nice.
    The pictures are really enjoyable, wonderful landscapes!
    Have a great weekend :-)

  16. Her personality still shines. She looks very well-loved.

  17. awwww, Flora...such a kind soul that is smiling down from Heaven on us all. I'm so glad you shared these pictures! I miss her!

  18. Flora, such a little dog but such big love! I can tell from the photos. Thanks for sharing these great pictures from your time with her.

  19. It is so difficult when they are no longer with us. Flora was loved and happy though, you can see that in your beautiful photos. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  20. Ah... little Flora, what a sweet dog she was. I know you miss her so much. When I had a dog, I loved to go for long walks, but now, if I want to go for a walk in the forest, I borrow Tessa, YoungerSon's dog, and take her out for the afternoon. Tessa doesn't get to go for many long walks at the moment, as they have new twins and a 2-1/2 year old, so life can be quite busy with no time for dog walking!

  21. What a sweet girl! Such a lovely face. So heartbreaking and wonderful at the same time that our beloved friends live on in our hearts and memories.

  22. Dear, sweet Flora. She was a lucky dog, showered with love, taking long walks, sniffing the tall grass. Such sweet words you send up to her!

  23. Sonia, bateu saudades, foi?

    Um beijo enorme

  24. Oi Sonia
    As fotografias sempre servirão pra que nossos melhores momentos nao sejam esquecidos.
    Sempre fotografamos o que mais amamos.Olhando a Flora me dou conta do quanto é bom guardar essas lembranças , ela estava linda!
    uma companheira e tanto !
    e as saudades que ficam!
    fica meu abraço pra voce

  25. Oh Sonia, she was a lovely dog and I know you all miss her so much. I miss my dog and have been toying with the idea of getting another one. Just not sure yet.

    I hope you have a very blessed 2012!!

  26. Não dá para esquecer!! Também sinto muita falta do Max, das suas manias... Estou pintando a casa e ontem foi retirado o último vestígio de suas espreguiçadas batendo as patas na parede. Tem certas coisas que só quem teve ou tem bicho de estimação sabe compreender. Olhando as suas fotos, a saudade aperta mais ainda e vejo nos olhinhos da Flora, a mesma bondade e até paciência do Max. Eles estão no céu. Beijus,

  27. I say that your blog is awesome! Happy New Year!

  28. Such a beautiful dog Flora. i think you have to move on Sonia, get another one, though it may not be the same but you'll see love coming your way soon.

    Hope you are doing fine Sonia

  29. what a wonderful, sweet-looking dog! i am so sorry for your loss!!!

    (i came over to say thank you for stopping at my blog and leaving a comment. i am saddened by the loss of your faithful furry friend... i've been through that too many times, as well. never gets easier.)

  30. hi sonia, thanks for the comments on my blog. so sorry to see that you lost your flora only a month after i lost my deefa. have you not considered getting another furry friend. i know its not a replacement for the pain in your heart but i can promise you it does help to have someone new to give your love to and every day i have stormy i love him more and more and his smiley face brings me such joy. lots of love, charlene xxx

  31. Hi Sonia! I am looking again at the photos on your blog of Flora (she looks so much like Katie, in the face!) The rescue organization where I got Katie just started a meeting for people who have lost their beloved pets and miss them so much. I wish something like that had been around when I lost Jessie! Only because I think it would have been nice to talk with others who understood, and who knew what it was like. Some of the people around me, even well meaning friends, just did not understand the depth of my loss. They tried to say reassuring things, but it was usually encouraging me to get another dog and move on. That sort of thing. But it wasn't that easy! Do you have groups like that in Brazil? Do your friends understand?

  32. Hello again Sonia,
    I am very much looking forward to seeing the collage of Flora, just let me know when it's ready or send it directly to that address I sent you. I was thinking that when you send it, I might use that as an opportunity to write something about the deep bond that we form with the pets in our lives, how we inevitably outlive them, and then how we choose to go on and honor their memory.

    A fellow blogger lost her beloved dog companion one week ago Saturday, and this has had me thinking about it lately. I don't want to write about this in a sad way that would bring everybody down, just in a thoughtful way. I can either do it with the Flora collage, or the next post after the Flora one - whichever you prefer. Either way would be fine with me. I almost did a post like that this week, but decided to wait. Have a lovely day and thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  33. So sorry about Flora. I'm dropping off some woofs & hugs for you! :)

    ~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)

  34. This is my first visit to your blog, and I'm so sorry your Flora has passed away.

  35. I stopped by to see the pictures of Flora, once again...Soooo Very Sweet....Such a lovely doggie-person. I'm glad you have lots of pictures of her Sonia....It is comforting, isn't it?

  36. It is so difficult to lose a loving pet. But, what wonderful memories you have of her!!

  37. Dear Sonia,

    I'm always thinking of you and Flora. I know you miss her terribly... in so many ways. xxoo

  38. Sweet, sweet Flora. They do stay in our hearts forever, don't they?

  39. Dear Sonia...
    Our beloved four legged friends find very quickly a place in our hearts. But when they leave us that place is theirs forever.
    We will not forget them because they loved us unconditionally.
    Take care Gisela.
