Sunday Snapshot ... The Other Coast

The Husband and I had breakfast with our friends Kim and Andy this morning.  While he and Kim were on the phone settling on the time and place, Kim asked him to bring our Sunday newspaper along with us.

Once we were at the restaurant, and the server had brought our coffee and taken our breakfast orders, Kim asked for the paper.

I figured that she wanted to have it because there was an article in it that she wanted to save.

She flipped through the stack of paper, pulled out the Comics section, and handed it to me to read.

The comic whose panels are in this post is what she wanted me to see.

Kim knew that our paper was probably still in the box when we pulled it out to take it to the restaurant.  She wanted to see my face when I noticed the special part of the comic.  

Did you see it?

Kim has become friendly with Adrian Raeside, the artist who draws The Other Coast.  He supports our work with Greyhounds Rock, doing what he can to help us raise money for canine cancer support and research.  Adrian contacted Kim recently to get some names of dogs she knew who passed this year to honor in today's comic.  Her TJ is there ... along with my sweet Daniel.  We also know Asher, Angel, Onyx, and Hopper.

I have put my copy of the comic in a safe place, so I don't mess it up before I can get it into a frame.


  1. I would have lost it. That's SO special!


  2. That is the sweetest thing I have ever read.

    More tears.

  6. I saw Daniel's name on the first read. I was pretty sure it was him. You have a special friend!♥♫

  7. Hi Connie, That is so sweet! Glad you're going to frame it. Happy New Year!

  8. Connie, thank you for introducing me to this comic; since Dave died, I've said good-bye to so many beloved four legged companions but I truly believe, each and every one is waiting on me in heaven. When I have to say good-bye to one, I always tell them, "Look for Jesus, He'll take you to Dave."
    It gives me comfort.
    Hope you had a good Christmas and a safe and sane New Year.
    God bless you.

  9. That's VERY cool. Did you cry? I would have. 😉
