Black Dog Sunday

We appreciate every day that R can run through the flowers after all that he's been through!

For all his life, his ears have gone crazy when he gallops.

We sometimes call him the "flying nun".
We get the feeling that R also appreciates that he's running without serious pain for the first time in many years. We still do physical therapy with him every day to keep his elbow stabilizing muscles strong.
We love our Black Dog!


  1. Crikey ..... those ears!!!! How could you not love him???

    That's one happy face, R... hugs and wags, YAM-auntyxxx

  3. Look at that smile☺ Happy Sunday, R!

  4. He has such a kind face :)

  5. I love the floppy ears, and a handsome, happy, and active dog. For all the talk of the difficulty of photographing black dogs, you do wonderfully with R! And I could use some tips, because I often have trouble getting Luke's eyes to show up in his black face.

  9. We know he enjoys his runs,too. Sad to think if he'd been in another family, it wouldn't have happened.

    Our lab-cross Jake has Sister Bertrille ears, too.

  10. The smile on his face shows how good he feels and how happy he is!!!

  11. Warms my heart to see R romping without pain. Kudos to all of you. Your persistence and hard work has paid huge dividends.

  12. I love your black-dog too, and am glad he's enjoying life to the fullest!

  13. Oh this picture makes me want to smooch R
    Happy Crazy Love.

  14. R is very lucky to have people who take such good care of him!
