A very tired Shyla is snoozing next to me. I'm so glad to have her home but we won't be doing any of this for a little while.
One lesson that dogs teach me, whether I like it or not, is to value each day because their lives are short. A single summer is a huge fraction of a dog's life because they often get fewer than ten summers in their lives.
We will be back to the mountains again soon. We won't let a dog's summer pass without much more time spent frolicking above treeline.
