My Alphabe-Thursday (5th), the letter "C" — Some places I've been starting with "C" and for ...

"C" is for our cute little toy poodle, Katrin.  Katrin died Monday night of heart failure.  We loved Katrin so very much, Mrs. Jim had "rescued" her from a dying friend.

 
At left is Katrin last year on her 13th July birthday walking across the back porch to our back door.
On the right is a very guilty dog back in 2008 when we first got her.  She had gotten into BP's toothpaste.  See this link:

"C" is also for some places, countries and cities starting with the letter "C" where I have traveled:
Countries:
Canada
China
Croatia
Curacao
Czech Republic
States: (I've been to all 50)
California
Colorado
Connecticut
Cities:
Cairo (saw the sphinx, the pyramids, 'sailed' the Nile River, and rode a camel
Chengdu, China (saw the Sichuan Giant Panda Sanctuaries,)

Canada we liked most everywhere we've been.  Montreal and Quebec City rated high with us as did British Columbia and the Yukon Territory. 
Here are four of my favorite pictures from our 2010 Quebec City visit.

Croatia we've visited twice, one a weekend in Dubrovnik with our daughter and grand-daughter, KP.  Dubrovnik for tourists is the quaint little old red roofed walled city on the Adriatic Sea, across from northern Italy.  Of course it has grown a lot in modern times outside of the old walls.

The Croatia we visited later was a stop at Split while on a Princess cruise from Venice to Istanbul on into the Black Sea over to Yalta, Ukraine and then back to Athens, Greece.  We made stops nearly each day at other ports.


 - Jenny is starting in now on her tenth series of Alphabe thursday.  With 52 weeks in a year and 26 letters in the alphabet she is now in her fifth year.  I am linked to her blog, GO HERE for more participants and their offerings. 

 - I am in my fifth series of Alphabe Thusday.  I intend to put on some pictures of my travels when I can find a few.  I have some on in an album of Budapest.

Canada & Croatia are 2 places high on my TBV list.
I'd love to see Canada in the autumn and Croatia in the spring.
 
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your sweet dog ~ it is so very hard to lose our beloved pets ~ lots of healing hugs to you both and wonderful post and photos for C ~

Happy Day to you,

I've been to a couple of those places and I live in one of them currently. You are so very well traveled.

Have a fabulous day. ☺
 
So sorry about Katrin.... it's very hard to lose a pet, especially when she has been a part of your lives for so long. But BP's post was funny, and a fitting tribute to the killer of toothpaste!
Darn! The only C place we have in common is Colorado! Lived there a couple of years and have gone back several times on family vacations :)
 
So sorry to hear of the loss of your dog. I always love your photos...
 
So sorry to know about Katrin. Take care, Dr & Mrs Jim.
 
Sorry to hear about the lost of your dog. I hope to visit Canada one day..it seems a really lovely place to go.
 
It takes a while to get over the death of a pet....I still miss my cat....my condolences. Thanks for dropping by my bog. Hope you can get that cataract surgery which gets good results♪
 
I am soooooooo sorry about Katrin. That is awful and I know your heart hurts. Hugs.

I was thinking of C for Chicago - my kind of town - where I was born.
 
Oh Jim.

I'm so sorry to read of your loss.

She is such a cutie.

Sending you a big hug of peace and joy.

I suspect Katrin added both to your lives!

Thank you for linking to the letter C.

Hugs and A+
