Today hasn't been my best day ever. The discs above and below the surgically fused section of my low back are giving me pain. I was "worked over" by my physical therapist, and it was bordering on agonizing. Shyla comes to my appointments because my PT loves her - but even Shyla seemed worried about all the needles being put into me. I'm hopeful this will help so we don't have to even consider any more surgery.
But, on days like today, I'm so glad that I get outside bright and early with Shyla so I can look back our morning fun as a bright spot in my day.
This weekend, I was looking for something in my closet, and I came upon a toy that was a favorite of Acadia, a chocolate Lab who lived two generations before Shyla. I pulled the toy out, and I thought it would be fun to have Shyla play with her departed big sister's toy.
This morning, the two them watched the sun rise together.
But, the toy that I found this weekend was a fun link. I know that Acadia ran around carrying that toy just like Shyla did today! For some reason, that makes me smile.
Tomorrow, I'll share a couple of trail camera stories. One involves a tree that was blown down by high winds - and it had my trail camera attached to it. And another involves a mother bobcat who is still hanging out with her kitten from last spring! Their playful behavior, captured by a trail camera, made me smile!
