Finally, Prince is coming downunder, unfortunately not to Auckland, New Zealand. Booo!!
Will do my best to try and cross over the ditch to see him and get tickets!
Anyways, here is a quick design i created in Photoshop to celebrate the tour on my Facebook page.

I was asked to verify if i was 18 years of age to take out this book at the library today
I haven’t written a blog in awhile, manly due to lots of life changes, lack of motivation, neglect.. terrible things to admit to everyone let alone myself – I’d call it a lack of inspiration at most.
But losing my companion Che the other week I feel moved to express my feelings. I got Che at 8 weeks old, so she was my baby. I’m still trying to get over her, as she was always there for me, in terms of comfort, security and friendship. And I miss her terribly.
Finding her lying underneath her favourite tree was heartbreaking for me and I was overcome by a feeling of helplessness, sadness and also guilt. I really hoped she wasn’t in any pain. I’m not sure what the cause of her death was, but she did look somewhat peaceful. Her ears were perked up as if she was on alert, her eyes and mouth open. When she failed to respond to my calls, my heart just sank as I approached her and the realisation that she wasn’t breathing just hit me like a tonne of bricks.
There’s this empty space now with her gone, no more greetings from the gate in the evenings, no dog to feed the bones and leftovers to, no sound of her huge horse-like feet on the porch, no dog looking at me through the sliding door to come inside, no more barking (especially at the annoying cats next door), no dog to play ball with and run around the yard with. All these things about her and the routine, I’m now having to adjust and it feels strange. I’m not sure if anyone really can relate to the grief, unless they too of course own dogs. But with her death being so sudden, and her not having any symptoms or showing any signs of being ill – that is why I think it’s been also hard to come to terms with her death. One day she is running around the backyard, the next day she’s lying lifeless under the tree.
I really would love another dog to fill the void in her absence but I’m going to give it sometime before I do. Puppies and dogs are hard work. You have to invest a lot of time in training and looking after them. So when the time is right, hopefully I can get another dog to look after and train to look after our family.
Anyways, this blog is dedicated to my wonderful dog Che. She was such a beautiful, loyal companion. If there’s a doggie heaven I hope she’s there playing in the Purple Rain. RIP my girl Che, thank you for being a good and devoted friend, you brought me lots of happiness in the 8 years I had you.
