A Happy Happy Saturday!

I am still glowing after yesterday's rescue. Bounder's owner says he is home, happy, and "eating and drinking tons".  Thanks for all of your kind comments yesterday!

Shyla and I had a celebration ride together this morning. Shyla has become crazy about that stump (in the photo) on Hug Hill. It was Angel K's favorite place to perch on Hug Hill but Shyla hasn't been interested in it until recently. If I recall her from the other side of it, she leaps on it on her way to me, just for fun!
These are the "good old days" for Shyla. She's at her peak, and she's loving it. I do wish she'd be more careful of her joints but I guess she feels invincible.

We both smiled all the way through our morning ride. Can you believe that this trail had snow on it just a month ago? It's like nirvana now with wildflowers lining it.

And, to top off our day, the first Columbines are blooming!!!

Prepare yourselves for a few weeks of Columbine overload. They are my favorite flowers!
Happy Saturday to all of you. I hope that you are smiling along with us.
