Blogville recently lost a dear fur-iend, Dory from Dory’s Backyard and today we will honor her with a tribute and blog hop. While we didn’t know her all that well, we were always inspired by her Flower Friday posts and her smiling face. Sweet little Dory will be missed by everyone in Blogville. We are sending digital hugs and tail wags to her ‘brothers’ Arty (the Mayor of Blogville), Jakey, Bilbo and to her ‘pawrents.’ Dory may be gone, but she will never be forgotten and is no doubt spreading smiles among way too many of the others who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge from Blogville and will definitely be missed.
In honor of sweet Dory, here are a few of Sam’s favorite flowers from around our garden.

Thanks guys! Appreciate you swinging by for the tribute. Dory seemed like a very special pup though we didn’t know her all that well. Everyone sure loved her!
In 7+ years of blogging, I’ve lost many friends. It’s so hard because we don’t have to have met dogs and people IRL to learn to care about them.
Wishing every comfort to Dory’s family. It’s a sorrow that visits us all.
Well expressed, Pamela!
Such beautiful flowers! We didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Dory ourselves, but it’s obvious how many loved her and will miss her; and we’re so sad for her family.
Thanks. We hope the flower tribute helps comfort her family.
What pretty flowers! Fanks for participatin in da Flowers for Dory blog hop.
Thank you. It was a privilege to participate. Dory was a sweet girl and will be greatly missed.
I didn’t know Dory, her siblings, or her pawrents; but I am saddened by her passing. As I am each time one of Blogville’s own crosses the Rainbow Bridge. The blog hop is a beautiful tribute to this sweet little girl.
A beautiful tribute! :'(
Thanks. She was a beautiful pup.
Always sad to lose a blog friend. Sam, your flower tribute is lovely.
Yes, especially those as sweet as Dory.
Oh, this is such a lovely tribute to our sweet furiend! You look mighty handsome in the middle of those flowers Sam! I sure do miss her smile….
We all miss that sweet smile.
Lovely tribute for a lovely girl.
Dory would love your flowers. And look at you hiding in there!! Seems to me you like flowers too, aye??

Your fur-iend, Sam🐾

Thanks for spreading the word on this blog hop. It was a privilege to participate.
We luved Dory a lot and her loss has been a big tuff. Sam looks so sweet in the garden. Is that Salvia?
Marty and Mom
We will definitely miss her sweet face. It’s actually lupines. They are everywhere and seem to love Sam’s ‘tending.’ 🙂
Beautiful tribute to Dory. Unfortunately we did not know her. She must be special. Glad your back.
What a beautiful tribute to Dory! You’ve got some pretty flowers there, Sam 🙂
What lovely flowers!!! Thank you so much for sharing them with us in memory of Dory!
Love and Hugs,
Jakey, Arty & Bilbo(and Mama and Daddy)
What a wonderful tribute to Blogville’s Dory. And I have never gotten the blog hop thing down quite right either. I’m just glad I could get on it, even if it doesn’t look good at the bottom of my blog!
Thank you! It’s like crossing the streams in Ghostbusters (Blogger and WordPress). Bad things can happen. 🙂
Yes, I decided this time that that was the problem, too. Eh bien, as Lexi’s good friend Pierre would say.
What a beautiful tribute to a beautiful fur-iend. Hugs and kisses to all. The ZAB team
Thanks. Dory was a real sweetie from what everyone tells me. She deserved a tribute befitting her flower posts.
Dory will just love your photo in the pretty bed of flowers.
Hugs madi your bfff
Thank you, Madi. She was a sweet girl who deserves to see nice flowers today. Thank you for swinging by our ranch. Will we could have met under happier circumstances.
Hi Sam ~ we are happy to meet you, and you’ve made a beautiful garden picture for sweet Angel Dory today. I’m sorry we did not meet you under better circumstances, but we hope to come back again to visit … we read “about us” and think it is just wonderful that you and your Mom help so many people in need. Paws up from Dougie Dog, and little Zoey.
Many thanks for swinging by the Ranch and appreciate your comment. We didn’t know Dory very well, but loved her sweet smile and her flowers are legendary in Blogville. Sam and I will be swinging by your zoo to get to know you guys better. ❤︎
I tried to do the Blog Hop thing but couldn’t – kept stuffing up. Not very good at these things. However, I did sent an email to Dory’s address and sent a picture of Benji and The WaWa. I think I only met her once but the sadness of her passing from us touches everyone.
I’m not very good with those blog hop things either and getting the links to work in WordPress can be a challenge, but am sure your note will be more than welcomed. ❤︎ Thank you so much for your efforts!
Did not get the pleasure of meeting Dory, but this is a wonderful tribute. Hugs and kisses to Dory’s humans and brothers from me and Tippy.
That’s a very sweet message. I’m sure it will help her peeps. Thank you!
Those are pretty flowers! They are a perfect tribute to sweet Dory.
Many thanks for stopping by for our tribute. Sweet Dory will be missed by us all.
Lovely tribute to a lovely little dog! I too have known the pain and my heart goes out to everyone who is missing her right now. <3
Thank you! She was a great little pup who brought so much joy to peeps across Blogville.
that is a beautiful tribute! I am sad because we just met Dory a month or so ago, wish we had the chance to know her longer. Sure her Mama will love your post!
Thanks, Dakota! We didn’t know her well but know all too much the sorrow of seeing our fur-kids cross the Rainbow Bridge. She was always a bright pawsitive spot especially with her flower share.
that’s beautiful Sam… and you are the enterpiece of all that flowers…
Today, dear Dory is the centerpiece of all things flower. We will miss her and her sweet smile.
me too… it came so fast and like an icy cold shower…. :o(
Denver weather must have known to be sad today, it’s cold and grey. But nothing diminishes that sweet smile of hers. We sure will miss seeing that.
