Happy Labor Day!

R is feeling much better. He and Shyla have started running and playing together!
Shyla's sensitivity and beauty continue to help my heart to heal.
She looks beautiful in meadows and in the pine forest.
And, I'm trying to get Shyla a variety of experiences, like meeting horses. We sometimes see horseback riders out on our trails so it's important that Shyla is calm and well-behaved around horses.
This little girl is capturing my heart. I still miss K, and Shyla can't change that. But, having a new little girl to nurture, one who is so sensitive and loving, has put a new spring in my step.

Happy Labor Day to Everyone!


  1. We is so happy fur all of you! :) Happy Labor Day!

  2. She is so beautiful! That Ruff Wear collar looks really good on her.

  3. Great news that R is feeling better! It's so good to see happy photos of him with Shyla, and to "hear" a smile in your voice again. :)

  4. I am so glad that R is doing much better. And Shyla is as beautiful as can be. It looks like you may have another cover girl.

    I told Murphys mom to read your blog, your insights and joy may help her get through her loss of Murphy a little easier.

  5. Hi Y'all!

    So glad R is feeling better!

    When they leave us, animal or human, they take a part of our heart with them. Shyla is already stealing another piece of your heart.

    I guess when all of our heart is gone, that is when we, ourselves, go to join the saying goes...where the dogs are, that is where I want to go.

    Shyla is a beauty, but R is too and they look great together.

    Cheers and hugs,

  16. You just gave us goose bumps! Seeing R and Shyla running together for the first time, yup! That's what did it :)

    What a beautiful team they make. It's wonderful to see them getting along together.

    You must be having so much fun teaching Shyla all these new things. We can see in her eyes that she is eager and willing to please.

    Such a pretty horse too. Doesn't seem like it bothered Shyla to be around him.

    Way to go!!
