1. Big job today - my person is sick. Hard work this Comfort Spaniel stuff.

2. What kind of Mother leaps at the opportunity to take their child's photograph while they are suffering from a migraine? Well a better one, than the one who actually posts it online I guess! Becky looked so thoughtful trying to will my daughter to feel better, I just couldn't resist grabbing my camera.

3. Time and again, dogs demonstrate their ability to empathize. They comfort family and even strangers in need of comfort never expecting much in return. Cavaliers are noted to be especially good at this task and excel as working Therapy Dogs.

4. Cavaliers have comforted and owned a few celebrities throughout the years:

Ronald Reagan, Jennifer Love Hewitt , Liv Tyler, Diane Sawyer, Courtney Cox and Davic Arquette, Jerry O'Connell, Amanda Byrnes, Mischa Barton, Koda Kumi,  Terri Hatcher, Jon Favreaum Sylvester Stallone, Claire Danes, Jerry O'Connell, Brittany Murphy, Kirk Douglas, Michael J Fox, Emma Bunton, Seth Rogan

5. This is my first try at using a "Film Grain" overlay. Usually you see that technique on black and white photos, but I really like the mood it gives these photos.

Becky is lovely and so thoughtful! Dogs (and kitties) do take good care of their people. These are all great shots. Hope your daughter is feeling better ... migraines are horrible -- no fun.

Great shots of the pup with your daughter. I even knew a cat that would comfort you when you were upset enough to merit his attention.

Stopping by on R5F.

Becky looks like she is doing her job wonderfully! I hope the migraine subsided quickly,they are no fun.

What lovely photos! I don't have dogs these days since hubby is allergic, but I remember fondly how two Springer Spaniels nursed me through a long and debilitating illness. They have long since died of old age, but I think of them every day.

I hope your daughter is recovering.

Aw, your poor bunny! My middle child gets migraines and so do I. My other tow have escaped that, so thank goodness. Good puppy for comforting her mistress. My cats do that for us sometimes...when they feel like it. :) Hope you have a lovely, (and migraine free) weekend.
