  21. We can see that R is stepping up to the plate to keep you on your toes. We think he knows that he has BIG shoes to fill. He's doing a GREAT job! Please give him a head scratchie from Muffin and I.

    Your pictures are always amazing. K's Columbine really touched our hearts and souls this morning. K is surrounding you with beautiful memories.

  22. Those are some super powerful paws! And yes, I believe the columbine is blooming for beautiful K!

    Your pal, Pip

  23. The paws gave me pause, remembering similar shots of K. That truly is a magnificent caterpillar, and it makes me yearn for my macro lens that's STILL in the shop... Beautiful columbine shot, too.

  24. Your pictures are amazing and I love the picture of the paws! I'm going to have to take pictures of my Lab's paws. That is so cool!

  25. Just wanted to check in and see how you are doing. Glad to see your post about starting to emerge from the fog. It's definitely a roller coaster, but life goes on and we have to too.

    The flower blooming in her honor is lovely. I hope she sends you many reminders and special signs.

    Just wanted to let you know i was thinking of you guys.

  27. The Columbine is Beautiful and in memory of K - even more Beauteous!!! Thanks for sharing K and your journey with us. Sometimes sharing helps me deal with some things and you and K are "my heroes". We think R is coming into his own so to speak and will be there to share with you.
    Thank you so Much!!!
