Black Dog Sunday

Our desert trip was timed wonderfully to give the whole family time to recover from R's diagnosis and then surgery. He was zooming by the end.

He and his sister would race toward me when given the chance. By the end of our time there, R was neck and neck with his sister.

And, the hilarious Labraduo was back to spontaneous singing. They surprised me the first time so I wasn't far enough away to fit Shyla's nose in the photo.

I was ready the second time! They look so soulful!

And then they could also look completely silly.

Since we've been home, R has continued to heal. His fur is growing back which makes a big difference. Many people who meet him don't even notice that he is missing an eye. I do notice but it's become an endearing feature of our sweet Black Dog.

Also, it's become completely wintry so the Duo spends lots of time snuggling in sun puddles!
Happy Black Dog Sunday!
