Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

This ‘monument’ to a true companion lies about a mile from where I live. It is the most beautiful eulogy to a dog that I have ever read. I can say no more, because I cry every time I read this. Whatever you think of Lord Byron, he loved his dog.

    Aw, I’ve never heard about this before. How interesting. Makes me want to cuddle Zola, who is snoring as I type.

      I just think this is one of the most beautiful eulogies to a dog that was ever written. It makes me cry every single time I read it. It is literally about a mile from my house and whenever we walk our dog in the grounds of the Abbey, we always pass this memorial, whether we intend to or not. And every time, I stop to read it and cry while my husband walks away…he can’t even start reading this without welling up with tears, bless him!!!

      Thanks Tina, yes, it is very sweet. I also think it is quite apt about us humans too!

    oh oh this just got my heart… amazing to think that Lord Byron had this much love for his dog. (I am such an animal lover…. ) Lovely post, Nancy!!

      It’s just so beautiful isn’t it Karen? I choke every time I read it. Newstead Abbey is a lovely lovely place to have on my doorstep too, and to think that Lord Byron walked those same grounds is pretty magical as well!
