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.


  1. Excellent proof how dogs so DO live in the moment!

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. OMG! I absolutely love that picture of K rolling on her back! Gooooo K!!
    Glad to see the wind didn't blow away all your snow. It is pouring rain here right now. :(

    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.

  12. 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! :)

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

  14. Every photo is stunning! Love seeing her rolling in the snow and her most honest eyes - she is amazing!

  19. K's beauty and courage shows so much in these pictures!

  20. 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. :-)

  21. 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

  22. 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 :)

  23. 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. :)


  24. What a beautiful way to end my day.

  25. Woo there K~
