Happy Friday

Thank for all of your kind comments yesterday. No doubt, this isn't an easy time but the supportive words of all of you help immensely.

The Duo and I mountain biked together this morning, in cool and misty air that is typical of spring here. After climbing up to Hug Hill, the Duo rested side-by-side. This photo is so typical. R is focused on K, and K is focused on me.
Then, I released them, and they sprung into action. K can stick with R for the first step or so. The first photo is the instant that I called them, and they'd both barely started to move toward me.
Later in our ride, some of the mist evaporated as the sun burned through, and the Duo ran together. K had a step on R this time! (but R says that he was "letting her win")
These two are such different dogs from each other but they've forged a bond over the years. K is getting more reticent about playing with rowdy R but they are still happy siblings who enjoy hanging out together.
Happy Friday, Everyone!

I love seeing these pictures of K and R together. I am sure this is difficult for R as well ...he must sense the changes that are happening. Pip always seems to know when one of our cats is ill.

Hi Y'all,

What beautiful smiles on K and R as they move together. The last photo could be a painting.

Aren't we lucky to be able to immortalize our failing loved ones in photos, be they man or beast?

Have a safe weekend.

Yes, I'm sure that R knows all that is happening.The other day our Poppy(tortie puss) had been in a fight, very sore and luckily only one scratch. Felicity looked and searched for her (poppy was snuggled on our bed), and after I lifted Felicity up and showed her Poppy, she walked away quite satisfied.These wonderful photos are giving you memories always, and yes, we all share these days with you. Cheers from Jean.

Always a beautiful day when K feels good enough to play and romp with R.

Sending the duo, big Doxie scratchies on their heads.

I always love hearing about them together and stories of their personalities! They seem almost larger than life when I read about them and I admit that I've gotten very attached to both of them. I know I've loved seeing our own dogs' interactions evolve over their years together.
