Two Years!

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.
The Duo on Top of the World
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.

  2. We too love you Shyla and all you bring to your mom and family. I will never forget K's journey, when it didn't seem possible to love again. All it took was you, Shyla and hearts healed, including yours. ♥

  6. Hearts with sadness can be healed in many ways, yours is in the bundle of fun called Shyla, and with R, a wonderful pair of providers of TLC, love, companionship and so much more. As always, photos are superb, but your last one, tops. Hugs to all, Jean

  7. I can't believe it's been so long! I remember when you were debating between Shyla and a younger puppy. From an outside perspective, her progress has been absolutely awe-inspiring and so beautiful. I'm so glad you have such a wonderful girl.

  10. R and Shyla are so gorgeous!! It's nice when two family dogs bond like that. My girls get along really well but I have a few friends where the dogs don't get along and it's miserable.

  24. KB and Runner, You literally saved Shyla's life and in turn she has given you an abundance of love and joy. So very thankful that you gave her the perfect forever home. May you have many, many years together in the mountains.
