Remembering someone special

Maliki at home.
I have no intention of turning this blog into a memorial site, as there are some special memorial sites around...but sometimes you meet someone in life who is really wonderful whose big heart demands acknowledgement. Such is Maliki, a beautiful bitser owned by Cecelia at Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation. (The arts centre supports the fantastic Desert Dogs Program, and if you are considering making room for a dog in your life these dogs are just wonderful).

I had the pleasure of sharing many a car ride and a cuddle with this extremely loyal, patient, gentle dog. He was fortunate enough to be able to accompany Cecelia to work. 

He passed away last week, much to the devastation of those who met him. He was a big guy, and he's left a very big hole. 
Maliki puts on his "spoon me" face (a very effective strategy, as evidenced by the sheer number of people who simply obeyed).
