I have found some favorite photos as I finally made my 2017 calendars. Yes, I know that I'm late. Believe it or not, I discovered a place that gives late-calendar-makers a 50% discount! Maybe I'll be late again next year.
Last winter and spring were very snowy. R managed to get out and play in some of that super deep powder before his surgery in April. I love a snow-covered black dog!
Shyla was like a powerboat motoring through the deep snow.
In the late spring, we had the honor of watching the bear cubs play outside their den. They are not in the same den this year. Let's hope that we catch a glimpse of them next spring before they set out on their own.
Also, in the late spring, the flowers went wild, fueled by those huge snows earlier in the springtime. I adore this photo.
R was busy recovering from his elbow surgery at that point. He couldn't even do rehab exercises yet. He spent a lot of time snoozing. This photo when he awakened after I entered the room melts my heart. His eyes hold such love and hope.
