The majority of my photo challenge entries include pictures of pets. Usually I think of a specific photo or two right away upon seeing the new challenge each week. When I go to find the image, I often scroll through my others thinking "Maybe I should try to find a non-pet photo this week". But often I go back to my first instinct because it's usually the right choice. As I look back through my previous challenge entries, it's clear that pets are a major part of my life and I like that I am able to show that. I thought of this photo immediately upon seeing this week's challenge. It's me receiving a smooch from one of my mother's dogs, who is no longer with us. She was a loving, energetic dog. She brought my mom a lot of joy in the short time she was in our family. I'm glad I have this memory of her captured and am able to share it.

I have a tattoo of a goldfish on my left arm. People ask "Why a goldfish?" and my answer is always the same "Because I really like goldfish". I've had a tank of goldfish in every place I've lived for the past 12 years. It's always the same breed, called Orandas. There's not much to say other than having fish has always brought me a lot of comfort and joy.
