A peaceful day

A peaceful start to the day...
A joyful hike with my K...
Her love of life burst forth...
And her dignity captured my heart, yet again...
K is showing me how to live, regardless of circumstances, just as she's always done.

I LOVE K rolling around. Made me and MOM smile. And look at that cute tounge sticking out in the second photo. hehehe
K is an excelent teacher. We all are learning from her. I hope the peaceful and joyful days are many ahead. Keep following K's lead. She knows what she's doing.
Now if you will excuse me I have a box to attend to.

I always love those little glimpses we see of K letting go and being a little crazy! Of course, I love seeing her quiet dignity, too, but I always smile at those little moments when we see her with her guard down. It looks like it was a beautiful day for the two of you! :)

Look at that girl roll and enjoy life to the fullest. She could teach us all a thing or two.

It's amazing how the stay so happy and live fully. When Zephyr was recovering I worried so much and he and Astro would pick up on it. So, since I didn't want to upset him or Astro I was forced to try and live more like them. :-)

Dogs are so good at living in the moment and making the best of things. Kinda makes it a complement when some one's called a dog

KB-

I've been following your plights with your pup, and my heart goes out to you. We are seperated by distance and life experiences, but I can completely comisserate with you, and my heart is there. I had a beloved black lab from age 6 years old to age 20. My entire childhood. I finally had to make the difficult decision to lay him to rest when things got bad. Looking at your pics of K, I see him in her eyes! He was a rambunctious, vivacious, sassy dog. I wish our dogs could live forever, but maybe we wouldn't appreciate them as much? I wish you and your beautiful girl happy and healthy days.

PS-do you remember me? I'm the girl who called you about bear trails..from NY :)

That's living in the moment, not the past, or the future. Just the present. Hoomans need to learn how to do this some time. :)

Not sure it's possible to squeeze any more joy into a post than you got into this one! The rolling in the snow shot... priceless!

Baylor said...

Wow...my person just loves your pictures and the special bond you have with K! I think I have to draw the line at the teeth brushing though...you are giving her ideas!!! Yuck!

She always shows me your pictures and tells me of the adventures that are yet to come for us! Yea!

Keep on "romping and rolling" all over those great open fields and mountains of Colorado!

What a privilege we have to watch our dogs live for each moment and not worry about anything else. We should be better students and learn to live the same way.

Gorgeous pics - as always!
