Snowy Day in Colorado

A snowy day in Colorado...
It's also very cold, with my thermometer reading 6°F when I started my snowbike ride with Shyla. It wasn't much warmer when we finished.
Shyla doesn't let anything get in the way of her joy.
I, on the other hand, have had a dark day with lots of pain. Perhaps tomorrow will be sunnier, both inside and out - like yesterday was.
R is such an amazing example of why dogs are great role models for me. He's almost always enthusiastic and joyful, even as he's recovering from a painful surgery. I strive for a spirit like his.

  3. Pain that surges without being invited, relentless, makes for a grey day, but Shyla and her antics and R with his incredible spirit, will be with you through this, and will keep you warm, inside and out!!! Cheers from Jean

  5. We all strive for a spirit like our dog's! Otto WILL NOT let me spend too long working at the commuter. After 5 hours or so, he'll come into my office and just start being naughty -- not bad, just naughty. He'll pick up a piece of paper and take it out into the hall, he'll pull stuffing out of an old dog bed...it's time for me to knock off for a while!!

  23. I know that I always have more pain when the day is grey and gloomy. There's something about sunshine that instantly makes me feel better. I'm sorry you're experiencing the same thing -- but clearly you don't deprive Shyla of even a moment of joy out in the snow, which is pretty fantastic of you! She looks just stunning against all that white.

  28. Best wishes for both you and R. It's difficult to find reasons to smile when you receive bad news, but you've got the Duo and the Runner, and a beautiful place in the world, along with a great attitude of trying to make the best of everything.
