Shooting Star

It's not easy when you come after a heart dog but Shyla is becoming a part of my heart too.
The next photo is from our Utah vacation, taken near Capitol Reef National Park and Escalante National Monument, on the flank of Boulder Mountain.
To make this photo, I set up my camera to take repeated exposures over about 3.5 hours on May 13. While I slept, K came to visit, in the form of a very intense shooting star.

Now, we all get to make wishes, having seen that star! I hope that yours comes true. Mine is coming true, in the form of the wonderful girl in that first photo.


  1. I love it when wishes come true! That is just a beautiful sentiment.


  2. Just beautiful. MOM wishes she could learn the star thing. I am off to make my wish. Thanks for sharing with us.

  3. This is so awesome Kb, it's like a belated bday gift for me as my bday is May 13th.
    Your K is always near by watching over you and her little sis, Shyla. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Very cool pic. And we have no doubt that Shyla is filling your heart with lots of love. She knows she has found a wonderful being to love.

  7. I can't tell you how very happy I am for you! I'm wishing on K's star right now.

  8. Awesome picture of the stars and the shooting star. Wishing the best for all of you.

  9. I think I may understand a little of what you are saying as Jamie was my heart dog, but Bert is fast becoming the light of my life.
    Beautiful photos

  10. I love it! What a fantastic sentiment. That's how I feel about Bunny, too. Those are both incredible photos! :)

  11. This is the most incredible shooting star I ever did see,,, and I have goose bumps all over me from the presence of K---
    I believe in those special stars - yes I do,, and more love is growing in you for Shyla,,, all because of K's everlasting love for you.

  12. Ooh! I love this too!! What an awesome picture and sentiment!!

    Hope all's well!

  13. I think a heart dog always makes sure to leave room for the dogs that follow. That's part of what makes them so special.
