Snapshot Sunday: Cindy

Cindy March 2021

I am pretty sure I posted a photo of Cindy just recently but here is another anyway. She is probably the most photographed of all the dogs we’ve had because digital photography means that I can take more photos. Now that she is older especially I try to take them more frequently. Cindy likes to go where I go even if it is only to go to the laundry or put the rubbish bin out. After we’d done those things today I went back to the house to get the camera to take photos for one of Cee’s challenges. It was raining a bit and my slippers were getting wet but I wanted to get the post done. Cindy thought we were going back inside and here she is plainly wondering why I am stopping to take a photo of a gate.

I took two photos of her. The first one was without the flash so it is a little dark but I liked her expression. The second one was with the flash but I got those annoying green spots in her eyes so I have edited this one a little bit to remove them and the tear stains under them and to brighten the plants a bit. This is on our balcony.

NOTE: I last posted a photo of Cindy in February for a challenge post. Since I took that one Cindy has turned 15. We didn’t have a birthday party for her but she is getting a nice new bed as a special treat.



I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
