Seizing the days

The bears seem to be starting mating season early. This is the most tree-marking activity that I've ever seen this early.
Unfortunately, this guy, who visited my cameras the other night, chose an incredibly foggy and stormy time of night to visit so I didn't get great photos. After he marked the tree in the photo above, he decided to take a look at the camera.
Then, he marked the tree two more times before moving onto the next bear-marking tree in the area. As far as I can tell, he visited every single bear marking tree that I know of in the vicinity of my home. That's classic mating season behavior!

On a different note, we've decided to take a break from blogging to seize the days that we have left with K. We realize that, barring a miracle effect by K's new medicines, our time together is short. We want to make the most of it.
She can still run and romp right now.
So, it seems like a time for us to enjoy our time together, having some adventures and and some quiet time together.
Please visualize us as happily playing in the outdoors together while we're gone. If things change with K, I promise to post an update. Otherwise, we'll see you back here soon.

  56. As much as we miss your posts and your beautiful photographs, we are praying that you have MANY days (and weeks or months!) to make beautiful memories with Beautiful K. What a lucky dog she is to be so loved.

    Many people never experience the kind of love and devotion that you have shared with K and that love is multiplied hundreds of times over by the people who know the two of you through this blog.

    We're all praying for both of you. And so very grateful to you for sharing K with us...

    God Bless.
