Two years ago, we met Shyla - a sweet and very timid little chocolate lab.
It's been a long journey, as Shyla and I have learned to cope with her fears. They are not banished but are much better. We've learned, together, how to live a life that makes Shyla very happy, as you can see from the photo above.
Shyla adores the mountains and running like the wind. As her name says, she is a "daughter of the mountains". She brims with confidence when we are outside in nature.
Shyla loves her brother, R, and he loves her. They have a strong bond - perhaps the strongest we've seen among any pair of our dogs.
Over these past two years, Shyla and I have come to share a deep love of the high mountains.
And a love of seizing the day - together.
Shyla has changed our family, showering us with the love and sweetness that overflows from her soul.
Thank you, Shyla, for helping to heal our hearts. We love you.
