Black Dog Sunday

With every passing day, I adore our black dog even more. He keeps me on my toes because he's so mischievous (he ran off to explore just after this photo)! He has a mind of his own but he's learned how to listen to me most of the time over the years.

During this trip to the desert, I made sure to get some time with him and my camera. With his age having reached double digits at the end of last year, I don't want to miss a single day when he can still run like the wind!

I also don't want to miss a chance to see his eyes sparkle with happiness as he sprints to me across a mesa!
We all love you, R!

He has an ultrasound tomorrow to check on the tumors on his adrenal gland and spleen that were deemed to be probably benign a few months ago. I feel fairly confident that the conclusion will be the same this time... but you all know how it is. I won't totally relax until we hear the results.

  9. What a great idea to dedicate your Sunday posts to R. I hope the test results will be good, but I know how it is. He looks healthy and happy. I think we learn from them that today is all we really have for sure.

  13. It's difficult to believe R is that old. He doesn't have a grey muzzle at all or is he using one of those "Just for Men" products to cover it up. BOL!
