Thankful for our Shyla

This morning, before I'd even had breakfast, sweet Shyla had melted my heart.

Sadly, we'd awakened to a hazy world filled with smoke from fires to the west of us. The only upside to that is how it colors the sunlight rosy. Shyla was lying in a sun puddle, and I just had to take her photo because her fur was glowing red.

She started out looking at me, with those big and innocent eyes.

Then, R came into the room, and Shyla let her eyes flit over to him.

After she returned her attention to me, she decided to cover her nose -- which was about the cutest thing that she could have done at that instant!

For this Thursday, I am thankful for our sweet Shyla. I'm so glad that we have her warm, funny, and loving spirit in our lives.

I am also thankful that our friend Brian who hosts the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.


  1. for me it is the best thing to wake up with a dog... no matter what the new day will bring I feel good for this first moment... even when Phenny pferes to wake me up with bitchslaps... we hope the fires will stay away from you and you haven't to leave the house...

  2. I am thankful you always show us your two pups, they make my day, as do the wildlife you show us here. Jake melts our hearts many times a day. sometimes just the way he sleeps with his paws wrapped around his pillow does the trick, or the way his head hangs off the sofa while sleeping.

  3. Such beautiful eye, but then again Shyla is a beauty inside and out! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
