The Amazing Shyla

The sunlight is changing. Since I started loving photography, I've noticed how much warmer the light is as we move out of summer and into autumn. It makes Shyla's chocolate fur glow.
We are beseeching the heavens for more warm and sunny days to enjoy before our first frost and snow. We know that they are not far away.
I haven't mentioned it, because I've been afraid of jinxing it, but Shyla's confidence seems to have suddenly and unexpectedly grown wildly strong. She's meeting all sorts of people politely but very warmly. She gives kisses to people who she just met (but never forces kisses upon non-dog people). I watch her with absolute amazement. She's my girl, and I'm so happy that her true spirit is starting to shine through.

  5. Yes!!!!! Over the last year, Hunter has become more comfortable with strangers and so mellow when others come into our home vs running and hiding. These kiddos has blossomed under our wings of love. Well done KB! I know she will continue to mature and amaze you-maybe one day in Boulder too.
    Hugs, Noreen

  7. I know with horses they have that "aha" moment - where everything you have worked so hard for clicks. I wonder if Shyla has has her "aha" moment?

  12. I agree with you, the autumn light is so much warmer and gentler than the summer light.
    Actually - I would love to meet Shyla. She is an exceptional dog. I'm a dog person even though we don't have a dog due to severe allergies in my family. However, that doesn't stop me to love dogs.
    Your photos are - as usual - stunning. I love them.
