Thankful Thursday - Shyla

I am so thankful for Shyla's good health. Her epilepsy medicines have side effects that I don't like but they do control her seizures. That is a gift.

Despite some side effects, she is always happy while we do nosework or other training together. She adores that stuff! And she adores running through meadows.
We had a lot of choices back when we adopted Shyla, and I'm so glad that we chose her. I think that she needed (and still needs) a ton of attention, and that's what she's getting here!

Here she is with one of her favorite people on Earth. Shyla and he are an unlikely pair because he's extremely tall and has a beard... but Shyla constantly wants to be snuggling in his lap when he's visiting.

We love her and so do many of our friends!
We are thankful that Shyla is part of our family!

    1. That is so true. It's as if she picks up special vibes from some people who truly are very kind and gentle, even if they aren't the usual stereotype of who dogs are most comfortable around.

    1. Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about Jake. I hope that he recovers fast but it sounds like he's already had a number of days of pain :(

  5. And I'm thankful that you share Shyla with us through your wonderful pictures.

    Isn't it interesting to see which people become our dogs' special friends? They have strong preferences and seem to know things about the character of people that humans have trouble figuring out, even after years of knowing someone.

    1. Dogs do have a gift for seeing through everything to find the gems among people.

  6. I love her snuggle picture. It reminds me of Delilah, she loves those cuddles with her dad.

  8. Maybe she snuggles in his lap so she doesn't have to look at the skeery tallness and beard? BOL

  10. What a wonderful home she found. I know Shyla is thankful too and I think she was born to run through meadows of yellow flowers.

  12. What a fantastic profile photo of them together. Shyla knows who care, and sits there so happy and contented and safe. Beautiful golden flower, she might just be holding it in her hands.

  18. Without a doubt dogs can read people very well - there has to be something about that man that gives her very good vibes.

  20. Shyla is one lucky dog. I fear where she might be with someone not wiling to do the trust-building and gentle training you and the runner did with her. Her life is so much better for having lived with you. And I do believe yours is also much better. Hurrah for our dogs.

  21. There are some things that are truly just meant to be - And Shyla being with you is one of those things. Not many people would take the time to really understand her and give her what she needs to find that balance in her life to manage her fears. I also love the photo with your friend - He is a true "Shyla Whisperer" :-)

  22. Shyla is a lucky girl to live in such a wonderful place with so much love. Even though her meds are perfect, nothing in life is and it has to be better than seizures.

  23. We are so thankful Shyla has a home where she is loved and given plenty of attention. We are sorry the epilepsy medicines cause side effects. Healing purrs to Shyla.
